Abstract Stress activates the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis, which causes the release of glucocorticoids, a class of adrenal steroid hormones. Stress also activates the sympathetic nervous system and thereby, the release of the transmitters adrenaline and noradrenaline. Stress has a memory-modulatory effect in humans as well as in animals. In humans, the hippocampus, prefrontal cortex, and amygdala are rich in cortisol receptors. Acute and tolerable stress may increase memory performance… Expand
Stress Effects on Learning and Memory in Humans
Stress leads to increased activity of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Stimulation of the latter induces the release of glucocorticoids (GCs)Expand
Cortisol broadens memory of a non-stressful social interaction
TLDR
The results suggest that in a non-stressful positive social environment, cortisol induces a broadening rather than a narrowing of memory, and preliminary evidence that this effect might be more prominent in men. Expand
Protective effect of honey on learning and memory impairment, depression and neurodegeneration induced by chronic unpredictable mild stress
TLDR
Honey diminished learning and memory deficits and depression in chronic stress conditions and reduced the malondialdehyde level in treated animals. Expand
Effect of stress on learning and motivation-relevance to autism spectrum disorder
TLDR
Factors and/or circumstances that could interfere with the neurodevelopmental pathways involved in learning and motivation are clearly important and should be recognized early. Expand
No Effects of Acute Psychosocial Stress on Working Memory in Older People With Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
The results indicate that medically treated older adults with T2D show clear, typical mood and physiological responses to an acute psychosocial stressor, and suggests that it could be related to aging and not to this disease, at least when T1D is adequately treated. Expand
Mast Cells, Stress, Fear and Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
The combination of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), secreted under stress, together with environmental stimuli could be major contributors to the pathogenesis of ASD. Expand
Enhanced emotional empathy after psychosocial stress in young healthy men
TLDR
Initial evidence for enhanced emotional empathy after acute psychosocial stress is provided and this study was designed to test the impact of acute stress on emotional and cognitive empathy. Expand
Psychological and psychobiological stress in the relationship between basic cognitive function and school performance
This study analyses the role played by daily stress, assessed through self-report and at the psychobiological level, in relation to basic cognitive function when predicting school performance. TheExpand
Generalized Anxiety Symptoms and Interpersonal Self-Perceptions During Stressors: A Prospective Examination of Psychological and Biological Stress
Individuals with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) symptoms endorse negative emotionality, psychosocial dysfunction, and biological dysregulation. Interpersonal dominance and affiliation have alsoExpand

The neuroenergetics of stress hormones in the hippocampus and implications for memory
TLDR
It is suggested that the effects of stress on hippocampal metabolism are bi-directional: within minutes, NE promotes glucose metabolism, while hours into the stress response GCs act to suppress metabolism, which may occur at least in part through direct modulation of glucose transporter-4. Expand
Stress, memory, and the hippocampus.
TLDR
While cortisol administration has failed to affect memory retrieval in patients with MDD, patients with PTSD and BPD have been found to show enhanced rather than impaired memory retrieval after hydrocortisone, indicating an altered sensitivity to stress hormones in these mental disorders. Expand
Glucocorticoids and the regulation of memory in health and disease
TLDR
Data suggesting that the administration of glucocorticoids might ameliorate chronic anxiety by reducing retrieval of aversive memories and enhancing fear extinction is reviewed. Expand

TLDR
This review will focus on two specific topics within the realm of effects of hormones on memory: How glucocorticoids affect long-term memory consolidation, retrieval, and working memory, with a focus on neural mechanisms and effects of emotion. Expand

TLDR
The hypothesis is proposed that these apparently dual effects of glucocorticoids on memory consolidation and memory retrieval might be related and that the basolateral complex of the amygdala is a key structure in a memory-modulatory system that regulates, in concert with other brain regions, stress and glucOCorticoid effects on both memory consolidationand memory retrieval. Expand
Stress and glucocorticoid receptor-dependent mechanisms in long-term memory: From adaptive responses to psychopathologies
TLDR
The hypothesis that stress promotes the formation of strong long-term memories is proposed because the activation of hippocampal GRs after learning is coupled to the recruitment of the growth and pro-survival BDNF/cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB) pathway, which is well-know to be a general mechanism required for long- term memory formation.

Imaging stress effects on memory: a review of neuroimaging studies.
TLDR
High stress levels during encoding and consolidation of emotional material involve increased amygdala and hippocampus activation, and the role of the anterior cingulate cortex and other parts of the PFC during perception and encoding of arousing material appears to be a modulating one. Expand
Imaging stress effects on memory: a review of neuroimaging studies.
Objective: To review and give an overview of neuroimaging studies that look at the role of stress (hormones) on memory. Method: An overview will be given of imaging studies that looked at the role ofExpand
Differential effects of stress and glucocorticoids on adult neurogenesis.
TLDR
The findings suggest that rewarding experiences buffer progenitor cells in the dentate gyrus from the negative effects of elevated stress hormones, and the paradoxical findings of enhanced neuronal growth under rewarding conditions are considered. Expand
Stress and the engagement of multiple memory systems: Integration of animal and human studies
TLDR
A model is proposed which states that the impact of stress on the relative use of multiple memory systems is due to differential effects of hormones and neurotransmitters that are released during stressful events on hippocampal and dorsal striatal memory systems, thus changing the relative strength of and the interactions between these systems.
