Catecholamines: Catecholamines are chemicals that are both hormones and neurotransmitters. They are produced by the adrenal medulla, the inner region of the paired adrenal glands. The catecholamines include epinephrine and norepinephrine, which play a role in the sympathetic nervous system and prepare the body to respond to stressful situations, commonly known as the fight or flight response.
Conditions that can afflict catecholamines include pheochromocytoma, adrenal tumors, adrenal cancer, and trauma.
