C
Feedback:
The stress response activates the sympathetic nervous system to produce more epinephrine and norepinephrine and the adrenal cortex to produce as much as 10 times the normal amount of cortisol. The negative feedback mechanism does not accelerate the stress response. Cortisol production is not based on the stimulation of the hypothalamus. The stress response will not cause atrophy of the adrenal cortex.
