Improving and refining sports skills involves the mental and physical processes of learning and unlearning, and the two ­processes involve different chemistry in the brain. When people learn a new skill and turn it into ­long-term memory, neurons in the brain fire together and wire together to form new connections, and a chemical process called long-term potentiation strengths the connections between the neurons. When the brain unlearns associations, old neuronal wiring is disconnected; this requires a different chemical process, long-term depression.

The secretion of epinephrine and that of cortisol are 16 C h a p t e r 2 Homeostasis and Stress in Sports and Exercise linked together. The central CRF system activates both HPAC and HSAM pathways. Simultaneously, the pituitary secretion of ACTH results in cortisol secretion from the adrenal cortex via the HPAC axis and adrenal medullary secretion of epinephrine, which is activated by autonomic signals, via the HSAM axis. Both hormones work in concert to initiate and maintain stress responses and to establish memories of stress events.
