In brief: Fight or flight

Hi. Adrenalin (aka epinephrine) is the hormonal branch of the sympathetic nervous system. It's the classic "fight or flight" hormone for response to high stress situations.
It jacks up your pulse & BP, dilates your eyes, and makes you ready to respond to a threat to the best of your ability.
