Individual responses to psychosocial stress are influenced by a neural mechanism

Prefrontal Cortex Activity Is Associated with Biobehavioral Components of the Stress Response Author: Wheelock MD, et al (2016), Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. Contemporary theory suggests that prefrontal cortex (PFC) function is associated with individual variability in the psychobiology of the stress response. Advancing our understanding of this complex biobehavioral pathway has potential to provide insight […]

Determining the appropriate statistical approach for effective analysis of hormone ratios

How to use and interpret hormone ratios Author: Sollberger S, et al (2016), Psychoneuroendocrinology. Hormone ratios have become increasingly popular throughout the neuroendocrine literature since they offer a straightforward way to simultaneously analyze the effects of two interdependent hormones. However, the analysis of ratios is associated with statistical and interpretational concerns which have not been […]

Salivary uric acid modulates stress-related hippocampal activity

The hippocampal response to psychosocial stress varies with salivary uric acid level Author: Goodman AM, et al (2016), Neuroscience. Uric acid is a naturally occurring, endogenous compound that impacts mental health. In particular, uric acid levels are associated with emotion-related psychopathology (e.g., anxiety and depression). Therefore, understanding uric acid’s impact on the brain would provide […]
