Summary
"For many years the study of stress was generally synonymous with the study of Selye's model. Selye succeeded in integrating the physiological and psychological processes affected by stress, with relevant clinical problems. However, the hindrance of specialization has now taken its toll on this model, making interdisciplinary communication a challenge. This book attempts to break down the barriers which individuals come up against when trying to consolidate findings form the areas of psychology, physiology and clinical science. Stress: From Synapse to Syndrome aims to fill a gap in the literature by presenting basic physiological and psychological research on stress in a way that researchers from other disciplines will understand. It also covers clinical material concerning the effects of stress in a coherent manner. In this way it links clinical work with that done on animals on the one hand, and on the other, neurochemical changes with psychological 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. Thus the scope of the book ranges from discussions of common experimental procedures and the rationale behind them, to up-to-date information for those already familiar with the field. The book will aid progress in defying barriers and will inspire further research, particularly in the relatively new area of posttraumatic stress disorder."--Bn.com overview
