Post-Encoding Stress Does Not Enhance Memory Consolidation: The Role of Cortisol and Testosterone Reactivity
The results suggest a different pattern of relationships between these steroid hormones and the arousal of the negative images, and cortisol reactivity was negatively related to free recall for negative low-arousal pictures, whereas testosterone reactivities was positively related tofree recall fornegative-high arousal and total pictures.
Psychosocial stress increases testosterone in patients with borderline personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and healthy participants
It is concluded that stress-related changes in testosterone release are not affected by BPD or PTSD status in a female patient population, when compared to the healthy control group.
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 also
It’s All About Power
Abstract. The present research was aimed at providing a German version of the Personal Sense of Power Scale (GPSPS; Anderson et al., 2012) and testing its psychometric properties. A personal sense ...


The 'Trier Social Stress Test'--a tool for investigating psychobiological stress responses in a laboratory setting.
The results suggest that gender, genetics and nicotine consumption can influence the individual's stress responsiveness to psychological stress while personality traits showed no correlation with cortisol responses to TSST stimulation.
Climbing the Social Ladder: Physiological Response to Social Status in Adolescents
Social hierarchies and physiology are intricately linked, but these associations have not been well studied in adolescence, typically a time of increased focus on social status. Three studies were
Sex steroid levels temporarily increase in response to acute psychosocial stress in healthy men and women.
Rapid glucocorticoid mediation of suppressed testosterone biosynthesis in male mice subjected to immobilization stress.
The rapid changes in T suggest a suppression of T biosynthesis by glucocorticoid through a nongenomic mechanism, lowering the production of cytoplasmic cAMP; changes in gonadotropic stimulation of Leydig cells are unlikely to explain the suppressed T levels during acute stress; and the results are consistent with a direct inhibitory action of CORT on Leydenig cells.
