I know that during stress glucocorticoids enter the brain, enter neurons
with appropriate receptors, and act on gene expression. I can not find
information about whether ADRENAL norepinephrine and particularaly,
epinephrine enters the brain and acts on neurons. I was told that epi does
not, but I have not been able to confirm it.
