About this book

Describes the relationship between behavioural phenomena and the biological foundations of stress. It illustrates how stress arises when behavioural and coping mechanisms fail to allow organisms to respond effectively to environmental challenges. Other topics include the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical system and the sympathetic adreno-medullary systems and how they react to stressors, stress induced analgesia, immune system interactions and stereotypies.
