First mentioned: Blackout, Part 1

Adrenaline or epinephrine is a natural hormone found in many animals that accelerates physical performance in times of stress. It has medical uses, including treatment for cardiac arrest and severe allergic reactions. Adrenaline is linked to the special abilities of evolved humans, and Mohinder isolated his original version of the formula from a sample of Maya's adrenaline.
