Description
Stress: From Synapse to Syndrome attempts to break down the barriers which researchers and students encounter when trying to consolidate the findings from the areas of psychology, physiology, and clinical science. It fills a gap in the literature by presenting basic physiological and psychological research on stress in a manner comprehensible to all research disciplines. It also covers the clinical material about the effects of stress in a coherent manner. The scope of the book ranges from discussions of common experimental procedures, and the rationale behind them, to up-to-date information by those already familiar with the field. In this way it links clinical work with that done on animals, on the one hand, and on the other, neurochemical changes with physiological findings. The focus of each section is to explain the variation between individuals in the impact of stress, through an understanding of mechanisms which affect resistance to it.
