... parallel with a widening range of social, cultural and cognitive skills and,
indeed, to cope with a further-changing environment. Along with changes to
lifestyle, brain architecture/organisation and a slowing rate of maturation (see
below) came a change in hormone balance, namely, from adrenaline dominance
, the mark of fearful or prey species, to noradrenaline dominance, the mark of
aggressive, predatory species. Selecting hominids for delayed development
automatically selects ...

Continuous readiness for emergency also created the continuous danger of
social “cardiac failure,” with male domination resembling malign adrenaline
dominance in the body (see Chapter 3). Today, we find ourselves at the end of
the second, much more somber “party” of the last 10,000 years, and at the
beginning of the second round of globalization (which Thomas Friedman divides
into three phases3). There are no “new” continents whose populations can be
conquered and ...

Football is violence. Players say, “[I]t's like a way to test yourself against someone
else and see what you have to get better with.” Violence is not an unfortunate
side effect, it's the point. Players say, “I kinda like it,” “I love the feeling,” “[I]t feels
good, like a train wreck,” and “[I]t makes you play harder” (Quebedeaux, 2012). Q:
How do you view or feel when tackling an opponent? A: I feel really good. It's an
adrenaline, dominance thing. You're completely trying to dominate someone
else's ...

Fortunately, the amygdalae and hypothalamus also trigger an autonomic nervous
response, which might better be called an "automatic" nervous response
because it is instantaneous and instinctive. This rapid first response comprises a
shot of adrenaline (epinephrine) from the core (medulla) of the adrenal glands,
startled arousal, and protection (by shielding or escape) of vulnerable body parts.
Usually this immediate reaction buys sufficient time for the hypothalamic-pituitary-
adrenal ...

At least in anoles, testosterone and the sympathetic nervous system appear to
work together to increase social dominance. The state of contraction of
gastrointestinal smooth muscle constitutes a third general distinction between
terror and rage. You already read about the Old Testament "trial by ordeal" to test
a woman accused by her husband of adultery. Failure to digest a type of potion,
the "water of bitterness," would produce swelling of the abdomen and indicate
guilt. This swelling ...

Adrenaline is the dominating catecholamine of GacLa in the chromaffin tissue (
Euler & Fange 1961; Abrahamsson & Nilsson 1976) and if PNMT is the rate
limiting step in the synthesis of adrenaline a slow catecholamine turnover must
be assumed to explain this adrenaline dominance. A slow turnover of adrenaline
in adrenergic neurons of Gadui was indicated by a study with the PNMT inhibitor
SK&F 64139: the adrenaline content of the spleen of Gadui was unchanged after
3 days, ...

Lawrence & Haynes (1970) found that intraperitoneal injection of noradrenaline
in mice increased dominance in a social dominance situation while similar
injection of adrenaline decreased dominance and elicited a submissive
behavioural pattern. Since it is uncertain how much, if any, noradrenaline or
adrenaline would get into the brain when injected peripherally, these results do
not further our understanding of central noradrenergic systems and aggression
but they do serve to ...

Adrenaline dominance wanes after 1 or 2 h. Whether or not the syndrome of
spinal shock occurs in the horse remains open to debate. Spinal shock results in
suppression of all reflexes caudal to the site of the spinal cord lesion and, if it
does occur in the horse, is probably short lived. For example, with a
thoracolumbar spinal injury there may be complete loss of anal reflexes and tail
tone, and loss of patellar and flexor (withdrawal) reflexes. Such findings warrant a
grave prognosis.
