This essay describes the evolution of stress as a medical scientific idea. Claude Bernard, Walter B. Cannon and Hans Selye provided key founding concepts for the current view. Bernard introduced the idea of the internal environment bathing cells—the milieu intérieur—maintained by continual compensatory changes of bodily functions. Cannon coined the word, “homeostasis,” referring to a set of acceptable ranges of values for internal variables. Cannon taught that threats to homeostasis evoke… Expand
An update on physiological effects of stress
TLDR
The effect of stress on different body systems is reviewed, which varies in characteristics, symptoms, duration and management approaches, which is the process of adaptation to different stressors. Expand
Stress and health assessment
TLDR
Measurement of heart rate variability (HRV) is regarded as a non-invasive approach, in comparison with traditional cortisol assays in plasma, serum or faeces, to evaluate autonomous nervous system (ANS) activity and the functional regulatory characteristics of the ANS in response to a stress stimuli. Expand
Prologue: The Guardians of Homeostasis
TLDR
The core of this homeostatic system refers to pattern recognition molecules (PRMs) which possess the ability to sense ancient molecular motifs derived from microbes (MAMPs) as well as sterile insult-induced damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs). Expand
The evolution of the concept of stress and the framework of the stress system
TLDR
It is found although the concept of stress is developed from Selye's “general adaptation syndrome”, it has now expanded and evolved significantly and is now defined as a state of homeostasis being challenged, including both system stress and local stress. Expand
Concepts of scientific integrative medicine applied to the physiology and pathophysiology of catecholamine systems.
TLDR
The review describes acute and chronic clinical disorders involving catecholamine systems-especially Parkinson disease-and how these concepts relate to pathophysiology, early detection, and treatment and prevention strategies in the post-genome era. Expand
Overview: Stress and Alcohol Use Disorders Revisited
  • R. Anthenelli
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Alcohol research : current reviews
  • 2012
TLDR
Nearly 13 years have passed since Alcohol Research & Health first visited the topic of “Alcohol and Stress,” and new terms have been developed to describe the complex physiological interactions that occur when an individual is faced with stressful events. Expand
On stress and subjectivity
This article offers a critical analysis of contemporary mainstream stress research, focusing particularly on the way subjectivity is conceptualized. The article shows in detail how researchers inExpand
What is environmental stress? Insights from fish living in a variable environment
  • P. Schulte

  • Journal of Experimental Biology
  • 2014
TLDR
It is suggested that viewing stressors as environmental changes that cause reductions in performance or fitness provides the broadest and most useful conception of the phenomenon of stress. Expand

Focusing attention on biological markers of acute stressor intensity: Empirical evidence and limitations
TLDR
Experimental evidence suggests that most physiological changes elicited by emotional stressors do not reflect their intensity and are not useful for this purpose, and additional and more systematic studies are needed to demonstrate the actual validity of stress-induced physiological changes to quantify stress.

TLDR
Applying the concepts of allostasis and homeostats can aid in understanding how acute and chronic stress can exert adverse health consequences via allostatic load. Expand
The concepts of stress and stress system disorders. Overview of physical and behavioral homeostasis.

The notion of a stress system as the effector of the stress syndrome is suggested, and its physiologic and pathophysiologic manifestations are described, to allow generation and testing of new hypotheses on the pathophysiology and diagnosis of, and therapy for, a variety of human illnesses. Expand
Stress and the individual. Mechanisms leading to disease.
TLDR
A new formulation of the relationship between stress and the processes leading to disease is presented, emphasizing the cascading relationships between environmental factors and genetic predispositions that lead to large individual differences in susceptibility to stress and, in some cases, to disease.

TLDR
Evidence is increased concerning the involvement of the HPA axis and catecholamines in response to psychological stress, and possible individual differences in the neuroendocrine coping mechanisms may affect mood regulation and the state of health. Expand
