  • THE STRESS RESPONSE SYSTEM (SRS) has a central role in orchestrating physical and psychosocial development of both humans and nonhuman species (Ellis, Jackson, & Boyce, 2006; Korte, Koolhaas, Wingfield, & McEwen, 2005). For many organisms, the SRS contributes crucially to responding flexibly to environmental opportunities and challenges. One of the most remarkable features of the SRS is the wide range of individual variation in physiological parameters. Some respond quickly and strongly even to… CONTINUE READING
