Transcript of Nervous and Endocrine Systems

The endocrine hormones are then transported to their target cell. Once they arrive at the target cell, they are transcribed, translated and goes through the process of protein synthesis.
Some of the hormones are taken to the pituitary gland and because of the adrenaline, there is an increase in the blood pressure and the metabolism in your body.
In addition, hormones are also released including the adrenaline; this hormone increases blood circulation, breathing, and prepares muscles for exertion.
As soon as you see the "ghost" in front of you, your nervous system sends electrical action potential along the neurons; these action potentials travel to their target cells through neurotransmitters, which are the chemical messenger of the nervous system.
Nervous and Endocrine Systems
By: Ami Itaya (P-3rd)
You are roaming around in the world famous Netherworld Haunted House when suddenly, a ghost prop pops out right
in front of you.
The somatic nervous system then carries out information from the nerves to the brain and the spinal cord. This system is responsible for voluntary movements and this triggers your legs to run as far away as possible from your current "threat."
The autonomic nervous system is responsible for the involuntary movements in your body. In this situation, the nervous system causes an increase in your heartbeat and blood pressure, and can also cause your palms to clam up with sweat.
The sympathetic nervous system is part of the autonomic nervous system, and this system is also responsible for the increase in your heart and breathing rate, and also causes your pupils to dilate and your body to sweat due to the fight-or-flight response; this response prepares your body to fight or flee from the threat you are facing.
After you are away from the threat, your body starts to relax. However, due to the adrenaline rush, your mind and body will constantly be aware of your surroundings and you will be anxious until the adrenaline rush dies down.
The parasympathetic nervous system helps your body calm down by decreasing the heart and the breathing rate, ceasing the pupil back to normal, and decreasing your sweat.
