Sympathetic and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal asymmetry in generalized anxiety disorder

Developmental origins of infant stress reactivity profiles: A multi-system approach. Author: Reeves JW, et al (2016), Psychophysiology Physiologic investigations of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) have skewed toward assessment of the autonomic nervous system, largely neglecting hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis variables. Although these systems coordinate, suggesting a degree of symmetry, to promote adaptive functioning, most studies opt […]

Salivary testosterone / salivary cortisol ratio may predict a team player’s social popularity

Long-term stability of diurnal salivary cortisol and alpha-amylase secretion patterns Author: Ponzi D, et al (2016), Psychoneuroendocrinology This study tested whether testosterone and cortisol interacted in predicting social network centrality. The sample size consisted of 41 male rugby athletes from Burnaby, Canada. Using social network analysis (SNA), three measures of centrality were investigated: popularity (i.e., […]

Differences in Salivary Cortisol and Testosterone may guide social network dynamics

Cortisol and testosterone associations with social network dynamics Author: Kornienko, et al (2015), Psychoneuroendocrinology. This study integrates behavioral endocrinology and network science to explore links between hormones and social network dynamics. Specifically, we examine how cortisol (C) and testosterone (T) are associated with creation of new friendships and maintenance of existing friendships. A collegiate marching […]
