Regulation of the sympatho-adrenal stress response.

Varied sympathetic activity is translated into differential hormonal profiles under the sympatho-adrenal stress response. Our lab studies multiple components of this vital physiological response system. We study the synaptic peptide transmitter regulation of hormone release at the splanchnic-adrenal synapse and we study the regulation of activity-dependent differential transmitter release from neuroendocrine adrenal medullary chromaffin cells.
