Definition
Any process that results in a change in state or activity of a cell or an organism (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a cortisol stimulus.

It also regulates the immune system and affects many other functions. Source: ISBN:0721662544, PMID:11276391
