The unifying thread throughout this discussion has been the temporal sequencing of the stress-response process. We have shown that the most immediate response to a stressful stimulus occurs via the direct neural innervations of end organs. The intermediate stress effects are due to the neuroendocrine "fight or flight" axis. The reaction time of this axis is reduced by its utilization of systemic circulation as a transport mechanism. However, its effects range from intermediate to chronic in duration and may overlap with the last stress-response system to respond to a stimulus-the endocrine axes.

From these points, neural impulses descend to the median eminence of the hypothalamus. , 1959). The CRF descends the infundibular stalk to the cells of the anterior pituitary. The chemophobes of the anterior pituitary are sensitive to the presence of CRF and respond by releasing adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) in the systemic circulation. At the same time, the precursor to the various endogenous analgesic opioids (endorphins) is released. This precursor substance is beta lipotropin and yields the proliferation of endogenous opioids during human stress (Rossier, Bloom, & Guillemin, 1980).

1986). These structures appear to be the anatomical epicenters for the visceral and somatic efferent discharges in response to emotional arousal (Gellhorn, 1964, 1965, 1967; MacLean, 1949; Nauta, 1979; Redmond, 1979). That is, these structures appear to give rise to the multiaxial stress response. Indeed, these centers even seem capable of establishing an endogenously determined neurological tone that is potentially self-perpetuating (Everly, 1985b; Gellhorn, 1967; Weil, 1974). 6 by the dotted line labeled I.
