Definition of Noradrenaline:

Norepinephrine.  A catecholamine hormone secreted from the adrenal medulla and post-ganglionic adrenergic fibers in response to hypotension or emotional stress.

Also: Norepinephrine

“...The medulla produces epinephrine and norepinephrine, which are specifically designed to help the body deal with stressful situations...”
