MRI scans show hippocampal shrinkage during periods of chronic stress in rats, a new study reports.
Researchers discover elevated levels of TG2 in the prefrontal cortex of people who committed suicide.
Researchers report immune cells in the spleen can contribute to chronic anxiety following psychological stress.
A new study reports that a single stressful event may cause long term consequences in the brain.
Findings about how early life social stress affect brain connections in mice may have implications for treating human psychiatric illnesses.
Researchers report running can help mitigate the impact chronic stress has on the hippocampus.
In mice, social stress can increase risk factors for cardiovascular disease and shorten life span, researchers report.
Researchers have identified a new neural mechanism that contributes to long term stress and PTSD. The study reports the mechanism is mediated by brain fluid in areas associated with stress response.
A new study reports teens faced with chronic family stress have higher blood pressure and worse immune response to bacterial infections. However, those who used cognitive reappraisal had lower blood pressure, despite the pressures they faced.
Chronic stress causes autophagy in adult hippocampal neural stem cells. This results in a decline of hippocampal neurogenesis. Cognitive deficits and mood disorders that arise as a result of chronic stress are a result of autophagic death of hippocampal neural stem cells.
