(2018), Psychoneuroendocrinology. ABSTRACT: High levels of uric acid are associated with greater risk of stress-related cardiovascular illnesses that occur disproportionately among African Americans. Whether hyperuricemia affects biological response to acute stress remains largely […]

Autonomic and Inflammatory Responses Moderated by Stress Appraisals and Affect

Coordination of cortisol response to social evaluative threat with autonomic and inflammatory responses is moderated by stress appraisals and affect Author: Laurent HK, et al (2016), Biol Psychol.

Sex hormone variations in both sexes may be important when investigating stress physiology

Sex hormones adjust “sex-specific” reactive and diurnal cortisol profiles. Author: Author: Juster, et al (2015), Psychoneuroendocrinology Sex differences in stress hormone functions are presumed to depend on sex hormones. And yet, surprisingly few psychoneuroendocrine studies actually assess within-sex variations of testosterone, estradiol, and progesterone when investigating sex-specific activities of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. In this methodological […]
