Increasing evidence suggests that the time course of advantageous versus deleterious effects of stress on physiologic function is also apparent in some brain functions, including learning and memory. This article reviews the effects of chronic stress on behavioral performance and, more importantly, shows that sex of the subject, as well as duration and intensity of stress, is an important determinant of the functional/behavioral, neurochemical, and anatomical consequences of the stress… Expand
Sex-dependent changes in anxiety, memory, and monoamines following one week of stress
TLDR
Results show that short-term restraint elicits sex-dependent behavioral and neural changes different from those previously reported for longer term stresses and suggest that the temporal relationship between the change from adaptive to maladaptive responses to stress is shorter in male than female rats.

Sex Differences in Rodent Cognitive Processing and Responses to Chronic Stress
Abstract Chronic stress is associated with a different pattern of physiological, neural, and behavioral changes depending on the sex of the subject receiving the stress. In this review, theExpand
Chronically stressed female rats show increased anxiety but no behavioral alterations in object recognition or placement memory: A preliminary examination
TLDR
Preliminary evidence that the commonly used chronic restraint stress model may not be an efficient stressor to female rats is provided, indicating intact non-spatial and spatial memory in both control and stress females. Expand
Chronic Stress and Neural Function: Accounting for Sex and Age
Cognitive responses to stress follow the temporally dependent pattern originally established by Selye (1) wherein short‐term stressors elicit adaptive responses whereas continued stress (chronic)Expand
Sex differences in chronic stress effects on cognition in rodents
TLDR
The importance of determining the nature and extent of sex differences in stress responses is that such differences may provide vital information for understanding why some stress related diseases have different incidence rates between the sexes and for developing novel therapeutic treatments. Expand
Alcohol administration blocks stress-induced impairments in memory and anxiety, and alters hippocampal neurotransmitter receptor expression in male rats
TLDR
A reversal of stress-induced deficits in cognition and anxiety when alcohol was given post-stress is found, and changes in neurotransmitter receptor expression may contribute to these behavioral effects. Expand
Stress and Memory: Behavioral Effects and Neurobiological Mechanisms
TLDR
High stress levels, whether intrinsic or extrinsic, tend to facilitate Pavlovian conditioning (in a linear-asymptotic manner), while being deleterious for spatial/explicit information processing (which with regard to intrinsic stress levels follows an inverted U-shape effect). Expand
Estrogen protects against the detrimental effects of repeated stress on glutamatergic transmission and cognition
TLDR
It is found that young female rats exposed to 1 week of repeated restraint stress show no negative effects on temporal order recognition memory (TORM), a cognitive process controlled by the prefrontal cortex (PFC), which was contrary to the impairment in TORM observed in stressed males. Expand
Stress‐Induced Changes in Spatial Memory are Sexually Differentiated and Vary Across the Lifespan
  • R. Bowman
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of neuroendocrinology
  • 2005
TLDR
Sex differences in response to stress on a variety of spatial tasks are reviewed, highlighting the point that many effects obtained in males cannot be generalised to females and highlighting the need to investigate the stress response at different ages and in both sexes. Expand
Neurochemical and behavioral effects of chronic unpredictable stress
TLDR
Prior exposure to this CUS procedure reduced dopamine release in the mPFC during acute elevation stress and prevented the impairment of performance on a spatial recognition test following an acute stressor, which may contribute to an understanding of the complex behavioral consequences of stress.

Sex Differences in Chronic Stress Effects on Memory in Rats
TLDR
Results show that responses of monoamine and amino acid containing neural systems may contribute to or underlie sex differences in stress effects on cognition, and show sexually differentiated cognitive responses to chronic stress and underline the importance of considering the sex/gender of subjects when studying the stress response. Expand
Sex differences in behavioral and neurochemical profiles after chronic stress Role of housing conditions
TLDR
Results show that stress affects limbic neurochemistry across sex, although only males exhibit stress-dependent decrements in object memory, and housing condition is a critical variable for male models of stress that can influence the extent the stress manipulation affects behavior. Expand
Food deprivation modulates chronic stress effects on object recognition in male rats: role of monoamines and amino acids
TLDR
Results suggest that food deprivation may act as a novel stress, thereby increasing subjects' arousal and attention toward the objects, which aids stressed subjects, especially in low-demand conditions. Expand
Effects of chronic restraint stress and estradiol on open field activity, spatial memory, and monoaminergic neurotransmitters in ovariectomized rats
TLDR
Novel information is provided showing that estradiol alters behavioral and neurochemical responses to stress in ovariectomized rats, and it is shown thatEstradiol may moderate stress effects on cognition and anxiety through both organizational and activation effects. Expand
Effects of chronic corticosterone ingestion on spatial memory performance and hippocampal serotonergic function
TLDR
The results suggest that hippocampal serotonergic terminals show long lasting effects from corticosterone and may also be an early indicator of deleterious effects of glucocorticoids on hippocampal function. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that the morphological changes induced by the hormones have an impact on hippocampal function and ways to maximize gonadal hormone-dependent enhancements in memory function are sought. Expand
Chronic Stress Induces Impairment of Spatial Working Memory Because of Prefrontal Dopaminergic Dysfunction
TLDR
Results indicate that chronic stress induces working memory impairment through a D1 receptor-mediated hypodopaminergic mechanism in the PFC, and provides important information for understanding of the mechanisms underlying PFC dysfunction in stress-related neuropsychiatric disorders. Expand
Estradiol Enhances Learning and Memory in a Spatial Memory Task and Effects Levels of Monoaminergic Neurotransmitters
TLDR
Results show that estrogen enhances learning/memory on a task utilizing spatial memory and appears to require the chronic (several days) presence of estrogen. Expand
Restraint stress reversibly enhances spatial memory performance
TLDR
The results suggest that the duration of stress may differentially affect learning/memory with shorter periods of stress serving an adaptive function while longer durations causing maladaptive changes. Expand
Chronic stress impairs rat spatial memory on the Y maze, and this effect is blocked by tianeptine pretreatment.
TLDR
Results from Experiment 4 showed that chronic restraint stress impaired spatial memory performance on the Y maze when rats were tested the day after the last stress session and that tianeptine prevented the stress-induced spatial memory impairment. Expand
