In one of his last research articles, Axelrod reviewed the large corpus of research conducted on the body's responses
to increased psychological and physiological stress by the release of adrenocorticotropin (ACTH), glucocorticoids, epinephrine
and norepinephrine by various glands. Axelrod found that the release of ACTH is controlled by complex regulatory mechanisms
and that various hormones can indirectly control the release of ACTH by acting on central locations to modify the secretion
of these releasing or inhibiting factors.
