An alternative name for epinephrine; the hormone and neurotransmitter.
Adrenaline, also known as epinephrine, is a hormone and medication which is involved in regulating visceral functions (e.g., respiration). It appears as a white microcrystalline granule. Adrenaline is normally produced by the adrenal glands and by a small number of neurons in the medulla oblongata. It plays an essential role in the fight-or-flight response by increasing blood flow to muscles, heart output by acting on the SA node, pupil dilation response, and blood sugar level. It does this by binding to alpha and beta receptors. It is found in many animals, including humans, and some single-celled organisms. It has also been isolated from the plant Scoparia dulcis found in Northern Vietnam.
Adrenaline is the debut album by the alternative metal band Deftones, released in 1995 through Maverick Records. The hidden track on the album, "Fist", was produced by Ross Robinson while the rest of album was produced by Terry Date. Originally titled 7 Words, some promotional copies were released before Adrenaline became the name of choice. "7 Words" and "Bored" were released as singles. The album's cover art depicts a baby aspirator. The song "Engine No. 9" has been covered by Korn, Live, and Suicide Silence and is featured in the film Law Abiding Citizen.
