Neurotransmitter family


Most common sites of action, and action exerted at those sites (excitatory/inhibitory/modulatory?)

released from chromaffin cells in the adrenal cortex - generally acts in the peripheral nervous system
acts on nearly all body tissues
generally excitatory

Receptors (type, differences in signaling depending on receptor?)

adrenergic receptors

Mechanism to stop signaling


Behavioral outcomes of release

similar to norepinephrine - activation of sympathetic nervous system; attention, arousal, preparation to respond to a stimulus
