The interaction of the nervous and endocrine systems Both

The interaction of the nervous and endocrine systems Both the nervous system and endocrine system help coordinate the body's responses to the external and internal environment as well as help with homeostasis. For each of the following scenarios listed below describe how the nervous and endocrine systems help handle the body's response. Try to be as specific as possible - for example, which parts of the nervous system gather the initial information and then help coordinate a response? Which parts of the endocrine system (glands, tropic and non-tropic hormones) help coordinate the response? Specifically, how does the body respond to meet the challenges presented (think of things like heart rate, adrenaline output, blood glucose levels, etc)? Scenario 1: You just came home from your family's Thanksgiving celebration. Dinner was so good that you had 3 servings of food. Scenario 2: While driving a cat runs out in front of you and you have to slam on the brakes to stop in time.
