The Science of Stress

Scientific American Explores Big Ideas

When people say they feel stressed out, what exactly do they mean? This volume looks at the topic of stress from physiological and psychological perspectives to explain what processes in the body and mind create this feeling of stress. It considers research on the negative impacts stress can have on the brain and the body over time, and explores some of the common causes of stress, including trauma. While research shows that chronic stress can have a wide range of adverse health impacts, experts also offer advice on how to manage stress and prevent it from having these negative effects.
