Resilience to traumatic stress is a complex psychobiological process that protects individuals from developing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other untoward consequences of exposure to extreme stress, including depression. Progress in translational research points toward the neuropeptide Y (NPY) system - among others - as a key mediator of stress response and as a potential therapeutic focus for PTSD. Substantial preclinical evidence supports the role of NPY in the modulation of stress… Expand
Stress Response Modulation Underlying the Psychobiology of Resilience
TLDR
Significant aspects of stress response modulation related to early life development and epigenetics, selected neurobiological and neurochemical systems, and a number of emotional, cognitive, psychosocial, and behavioral factors important in resilience are highlighted. Expand
Neurobiology of Resilience: Interface Between Mind and Body
TLDR
This review provides an update on the current state of research of the neurobiological mechanisms of stress resilience, and proposes viewing resilience as a process that requires the integration of multiple central and peripheral systems that will ultimately lead to novel therapeutic options. Expand
Advances in the pharmacotherapeutic management of post-traumatic stress disorder
TLDR
The primary focus being the novel and potential targets which can be explored better to understand possible future research and advanced therapy in PTSD and several agents are investigated in different preclinical and clinical phases, which can potentially overcome the pitfalls and limitations associated with conventional therapies. Expand
Role of the Bed Nucleus of the Stria Terminalis in PTSD: Insights From Preclinical Models
TLDR
The role of the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis is considered in stress and memory processes in the context of preclinical models of PTSD, implicating an involvement of BNST in stress responses. Expand
Understanding Resilience and Preventing and Treating PTSD.
TLDR
This review summarizes the vast field of resilience research spanning genomic, psychosocial, and neurobiological levels, and discusses how findings have led and can lead to new preventive and treatment interventions for PTSD. Expand
Sex Differences in the Neuropeptide Y System and Implications for Stress Related Disorders
TLDR
Sex differences in the NPY system in basal and stressed conditions and how it relates to varied susceptibility to stress-related disorders are reviewed to highlight the important role of NPY and sex differences in manifestation of neuropsychiatric disorders. Expand
Hypothalamic stress systems in mood disorders.
TLDR
The most important future research task is discovery and development of appropriate companion tests that will allow the successful transfer of the precious treasure of neuropeptide system-targeting drugs into clinics. Expand
Potential of Intranasal Neuropeptide Y (NPY) and/or Melanocortin 4 Receptor (MC4R) Antagonists for Preventing or Treating PTSD.
TLDR
Strong preclinical proof of concept for intranasal NPY, and perhaps MC4R antagonists, for non-invasive early pharmacological interventions for PTSD and comorbid disorders and possibly also as therapeutic strategy is demonstrated. Expand
Preclinical findings on the potential of intranasal neuropeptide Y for treating hyperarousal features of PTSD
TLDR
Important effects of AS on the NPY system are revealed and it is demonstrated that intranasal NPY elicits long‐lasting reversal of traumatic stress–triggered hyperarousal. Expand
Single Prolonged Stress as a Prospective Model for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Females
TLDR
The results indicate that while SPS could be an appropriate PTSD model for females, sex differences, such as response to NPY, are important to consider. Expand

Neuropeptide Y and posttraumatic stress disorder
TLDR
Findings from preclinical and clinical studies of NPY that are of relevance to stress-associated syndromes and potential physiological contributions of the neuropeptide to the disorder are consolidated to suggest that reduced central nervous system NPY concentrations or function may be associated with PTSD. Expand
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD): A translational update
TLDR
Evidence supporting the relevance of neuropeptide Y (NPY) to PTSD pathophysiology is discussed, with cerebrospinal fluid measurements in combat veterans providing direct evidence of NPY association with PTSD diagnosis and symptomology. Expand
Potential of neuropeptide Y for preventing or treating post-traumatic stress disorder
TLDR
Putative mechanisms for NPY's anti-stress actions are discussed, indicating potential for intranasal delivery of NPY to brain as a promising non-invasive strategy to prevent a variety of neuroendocrine, molecular and behavioral impairments in PTSD model. Expand
Differential Regulation of Neuropeptide Y in the Amygdala and Prefrontal Cortex during Recovery from Chronic Variable Stress
TLDR
Changes in NPY expression observed during recovery from a chronic variable stress model of repetitive trauma in rats are consistent with maladaptive coping and enhanced emotionality, due to the nature of NPY signaling within these respective regions, and thenature of reciprocal connections between amygdala and prefrontal cortex. Expand
Single intranasal neuropeptide Y infusion attenuates development of PTSD-like symptoms to traumatic stress in rats
TLDR
Results show that single IN NPY can alter stress-triggered dysregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and activation of central noradrenergic activity. Expand

TLDR
An integrative model of resilience and vulnerability that encompasses the neurochemical response patterns to acute stress and the neural mechanisms mediating reward, fear conditioning and extinction, and social behavior is proposed. Expand
Neuropeptide Y: A stressful review
TLDR
There is a negative correlation between stress-induced behavioural disruption and cerebral NPY expression in animal models of post-traumatic stress disorder, which indicates a role in stress resilience, the ability to cope with stress. Expand
Intranasal neuropeptide Y reverses anxiety and depressive-like behavior impaired by single prolonged stress PTSD model
TLDR
Intranasal NPY reversed several behavioral impairments triggered by the traumatic stress of SPS and has potential for non-invasive PTSD therapeutic intervention. Expand
Neurobiology of resilience
TLDR
A growing literature in rodents is highlighted that is starting to complement the human work by identifying the active behavioral, neural, molecular and hormonal basis of resilience, which can pave the way for an innovative approach to drug development for a range of stress-related syndromes.

Plasma Neuropeptide Y Concentrations in Combat Exposed Veterans: Relationship to Trauma Exposure, Recovery from PTSD, and Coping
TLDR
Plasma NPY levels may represent a biologic correlate of resilience to or recovery from the adverse effects of stress and were significantly predicted by extent of symptom improvement and lower combat exposure and significant at a trend level with positive coping. Expand
