Extract from Course Lessons
Before we consider anger management, it is necessary to understand what anger actually is. Like many other emotions, it is very difficult to give a precise definition. In general terms, what we can say is that anger is a strong reaction to an array of different situations such as being attacked, being restrained, losing one’s job, and so forth. You can probably think of many other instances which make you angry. A definition of anger also usually includes physiological reactions to the angerprovoking stimuli. For instance, clenched fists, facial expressions, deep sighs, and so on are all possible physiological reactions. Many of these are autonomic nervous system responses, especially from the subdivision known as the sympathetic division which is associated with preparing the body for action. Indeed, anger can manifest in an attack response in many species. One of the difficulties in defining anger is that different researchers and authors might include other emotional reactions such as hatred, hostility and rage under their definition of anger. If you were to consult an English language dictionary you would probably find a definition along the lines of “a strong feeling caused by extreme displeasure”.
The Autonomic Nervous System
As mentioned above, the physiological manifestations of anger are part and parcel of understanding anger. To this end, we need to look more closely at what happens in the body when someone becomes angry. Specifically, we need to understand the role of the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is associated with the overall ‘state’ of the body. It is composed of unmyelinated nerve fibres which run from the spinal cord and base of the brain to internal and external sensory organs. The ANS is comprised of the sympathetic division which is involved with an action state, and the parasympathetic division which is concerned with a resting state. Activation of the sympathetic division is synonymous with arousal. During arousal, changes in the operation of the internal organs of the body take place which stimulate alertness and readiness for action.
For example, the spleen releases more red blood cells into the blood stream which increases the blood’s oxygen content. The heart beats faster thereby circulating the blood faster to muscles supplying sugars and oxygen, and it also replaces the used oxygen faster. Our breathing becomes deeper so that more oxygen is provided to the lungs. Sugar is metabolised more quickly by the digestive system to supply a ready source of energy, but foods in need of longer term digestion take longer to digest. Such changes are known as the ‘fight or flight’ response. This response enables an animal to either flee or stand and fight by equipping it with sufficient energy. In terms of evolution, the fight or flight response maximises an animal’s chances of survival in the face of danger. If an animal were to fight, then increased levels of blood clotting platelets released during the response will minimise bleeding. Endorphins released by the brain will minimise the sensation of pain.
Other responses include sweating to cool active muscles and dilated pupils to focus on external stimuli. The changes are stimulated by neural impulses from the sympathetic division of the ANS and are maintained by the endocrine system. The glands of the endocrine system release hormones and during arousal it is those hormones of the pituitary and adrenal glands which are involved.
Specifically, the pituitary gland releases glucocorticoids which are responsible for converting fats to glucose in the digestive system and for inhibiting the immune response until the fight or flight response has finished. The pituitary gland also releases ACTH (adrenocorticotrophic hormone) which stimulates the adrenal gland to secrete adrenalin. This enters the bloodstream where it maintains levels of muscular activity, a suitable blood supply to muscles, increased heart rate, blood pressure, and perspiration. The parasympathetic division of the ANS is not quite the opposite of the sympathetic division but its activity does counteract many of those of the sympathetic division.
For example, rather than dilate the pupils its actions constrict them and rather than inhibit longer term digestive processes it stimulates them. The parasympathetic division of the ANS is concerned with stimulating the body’s restorative processes through promoting tissue repair and storing fats and sugars for when they are needed. When the intense activity of the sympathetic division declines, the parasympathetic division becomes active. If you were to become angry this would stimulate the sympathetic division of your ANS, as you calmed down the parasympathetic division of your ANS would activate.
