(Information processing across the central nervous system is regulated and coordinated by small groups of neurons in the brain that express neurochemicals known as neuromodulators. The modulator norepinephrine is important for regulating arousal and attention. Norepinephrine modulates many sensory systems, including the central auditory system)
    • found: MeSH browser, June 1, 2020(Norepinephrine. SN Precursor of epinephrine that is secreted by the adrenal medulla and is a widespread central and autonomic neurotransmitter. Norepinephrine is the principal transmitter of most postganglionic sympathetic fibers, and of the diffuse projection system in the brain that arises from the locus ceruleus. It is also found in plants and is used pharmacologically as a sympathomimetic.

    • found: Hormone Health Network website, June 1, 2020:Your health & hormones > Glands & hormones A-Z > Norepinephrine (Norepinephrine also called noradrenaline is both a hormone, produced by the adrenal glands, and a neurotransmitter, a chemical messenger which transmits signals across nerve endings in the body. Norepinephrine is produced in the inner part of the adrenal glands, also called the adrenal medulla. The adrenal medulla also makes adrenaline (also known as epinephrine). Norepinephrine, adrenaline and dopamine belong are part of the catecholamine family)
    • found: Britannica online, June 1, 2020(Norepinephrine, hormone; Norepinephrine, also called noradrenaline, substance that is released predominantly from the ends of sympathetic nerve fibres and that acts to increase the force of skeletal muscle contraction and the rate and force of contraction of the heart. The actions of norepinephrine are vital to the fight-or-flight response, whereby the body prepares to react to or retreat from an acute threat)
