3 stages of General Adaptation System

stage 1: stage of alarm - first exposure to stress
stage 2: stage of resistance - When the organism is able to cope with the stressor.
stage 3: stage of falling adaptation or stage of exhaustion - When the organism succumbs to the stress.


clinical conditions in the triad response

- Ulcerations in the stomach lining.
- Shrinkage of lymphatic tissue
- Hypertrophy of the adrenal cortex and increase in glandular activity.


a varsity athlete showing symptoms of failing adaptations. list 4 factors that indicate it is taking place

loss of weight, loss of appetite, athlete training hard but performance is poor increase irritability, increase heart rate, can't fall asleep, ring around eyes


specific responses when you look into someone's eyes

dilated pupils


re-diversion of blood

vasoconstriction of blood from skin to GI tract


prepares the body of possible wounding

increase in blood platelets


fuel for muscular activity

increase in blood glucose levels


improving nervous stimulation

increase synaptic transmission


ancient chinese lie detector test

reduction of saliva production


a varsity athlete is clearly showing symptoms of failing adaptation. as the coach, what can you do to cause reversal of the conditions and what factors can you recommend the athlete on his/her own monitor

-Get to know your athlete’s social environment.
-Take all practical steps to ensure living environment is conducive to an orderly lifestyle suitable for studying, training, & competing.
-create a positive and less stressful environment
-the athlete can look at their heart rate and weight.
- athlete talk to others about problems or remove himself/herself from stressful environments


discuss the experiment and reasons for the results when subjects asked to do math problems wearing earphones through which extremely stressed noises were delivered

there were two groups of testers to do math problems while wearing earphones that plays extremely loud noises. one group had the choice to switch off the noise, while the other group didn't. as a result, both groups scored the same. the group that had the switch did not flip the switch because they had a sense of control and had the ability to turn off/on the noise whenever they wanted to.
