University of Utah: a Molecular View of the Fight or Flight Response

This animated tutorial shows cell communication by cascades of signaling molecules released by a fight or flight stimulus.

The presentation is highly dramatic but pretty cool.

Link here for another tutorial from the University of Wisconsin that addresses:

  • What part of the brain is effected by stress?
  • What hormones are activated?
  • How does the body respond?
  • How can you recycle excess stress hormones?
