The stress of abuse could trigger chest pain or angina, and may be a factor in other serious heart problems. High blood pressure, breathing problems, stomach problems (ulcers), and panic attacks are common stress-related symptoms among older people who experience abuse. Other long term effects could be a loss of mobility, depression, anxiety, changes in behaviour, behavioural issues and negative relationships. Many adults experiencing abuse are isolated. Individuals who abuse adults often threaten, harass, or intimidate them.
Outline and evaluate research into Stress and the Immune System Stress is the feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure, and is experienced when a person's perceived environmental, social, and physical demands exceed their perceived ability to cope. Stress itself is not an illness but can cause an illness if not tackled. By being stressed, it leads to an increase in cortisol (a hormone produced by the adrenal gland), and this increase in cortisol leads to a decrease in immune system functioning, which therefore leads to several illnesses. The main function of the immune system is to protect the body from infectious agents such as viruses and other toxins. In support of this theory, a natural experiment was carried out by Kiecolt Glasser et al in 1984.
How Antidepressants affect neurotransmitters. Depression is a medical illness that causes a constant feeling of sadness and lack of interest.

Case Study Questions: 1.) Explain the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. When the kidneys sense decreased profusion pressure, they try to increase this pressure by increasing blood volume through the renin-angiotension-aldosterone system. Once the decreased pressure is sensed renin is released, which increases conversion of angiotension to angiotension I. Angiotension I is in turn converted to angiotension II by the angiontension converting enzyme (ACE). Angiotension II causes vasoconstriction, which raises the blood pressure.

Protecting your children won't do them any good at all if they never learn to live on their own. Since you won't always be there to watch over them, they have to learn to take care of themselves, and you have to have the strength to let go, as painful as that might be. The father in The Road did everything he could for his son, selflessly and valiantly in the face of horrible circumstances, and by the end of the story has prepared his son, as well as he could, for whatever future awaits him. And that is what every father, even those of us in a dramatically more hospitable world than that of the book, should forever strive
The SNS also regulates the sympathetic adrenal medullary system (SAM). It causes signals to travel to a gland in the kidneys called the adrenal gland which plays a vital role in the body’s response to stress. This leads to the activation of the adrenal medulla which is located in the adrenal glands. This stimulates the release of the hormone adrenaline
