This paper reviews the psychology (P) of psychoneuroendocrinology (PNE). The relationship between the P factors and the endocrine responses (E) is described within cognitive reformulations of stress theory and activation theory. The formulations are valid across species, including man. The emphasis is on acquired expectancies, which are assumed to determine the physiological response, including the E responses. The terms coping, helplessness, and hopelessness are defined, and related to other… Expand
The specificity of stress responses to different nocuous stimuli: neurosteroids and depression
TLDR
The data reviewed provides support for Mason's interpretation of stress as fundamentally a behavioral response, and the high relevance of emotional factors in the determination of stress responses led to a reconsideration of cognitive-affective interactions in nervous systems. Expand
Psychobiology of Physical Activity : Integration at Last !
P is defined here as the integrative study of behavior from the social, cognitive, and biological levels of analysis. This is a broad scientific field that encompasses psychophysiol­ ogy,Expand
Psychobiological mechanisms of socioeconomic differences in health.
TLDR
It is concluded that sustained activation and loss of capacity to respond to a novel stressor could be a cause of the higher risk of illness and disease found among people with lower SES. Expand
Coping with competition: Neuroendocrine responses and cognitive variables
TLDR
This review defends the need to study human competition within the social stress framework, while maintaining an evolutionary perspective, and takes advantage of the theoretical and methodological advances in psychology and psychophysiology in order to better understand the cognitive processes underlying the social Stress response in humans.

Aggressive behavior: Implications of dominance and subordination for the study of mental disorders
Abstract Individuals of gregarious species form relationships of dominance–subordination that are established and maintained through agonistic behavior. The social status thus established and held isExpand
Stop that! Inhibition, sensitization, and their neurovisceral concomitants.
TLDR
It is shown that inhibition is important for adaptive behavior across a number of levels of system functioning and both central and peripheral inhibitory processes may be linked by a network of neural structures that guide the organism from one state of relative stability to another. Expand
Relationship between psychoncology and psychoneuroendocrinoimmunology (PNEI): enhanced T-regulatory lymphocyte activity in cancer patients with self-punishement, evaluated by Rorschach test.
TLDR
The study suggests that self-punishment may inhibit the generation of an effective anticancer immune response by stimulating the activation and proliferation of T-reg lymphocytes, which in turn stimulate tumor dissemination by suppressing anticancer immunity. Expand
The psychoneuroimmunotherapy of human immune-mediated systemic diseases, including cancer and autoimmune diseases
TLDR
The immune responses are inhibited by the opioid system, mainly by acting on mu-opioid receptors, whereas they are stimulated by the pineal-cannabinergic system functional axis, and IL-17-induced immunoinflammatory response occurring in the autoimmune diseases may be counteracted by cannabinoid agonists, which may inhibit IL- 17 secretion. Expand
The cognitive activation theory of stress
TLDR
This paper presents a cognitive activation theory of stress (CATS), with a formal system of systematic definitions of coping, hopelessness, and helplessness that are easy to operationalize in man and in animals. Expand
Psychophysiological stress in high school teachers.
TLDR
Blood pressure, static muscle tension, perceived strain, psychosomatic symptoms and epinephrine level decreased significantly during the summer holidays as compared to the working days, and more emphasis should be given to prevent psychophysiolocigal stress among teachers. Expand

There is no longer room for reasonable doubt as to the validity of the basic conclusion that psychological stimuli are capable of influencing the level of pituitary‐adrenal cortical activity, and the general biological conclusions emerging from the work covered in this review may be summarized.
