Abstract:  The human body, when under threat, elicits a set of neuroendocrine responses, including an increased secretion of glucocorticoids (GCs) and catecholamines from the adrenal gland and the activation of the sympathetic nervous system. These hormonal secretions allow a “fight or flight” response by mobilizing endogenous substrate and inducing a state of insulin resistance in the liver and skeletal muscles. Although the stress response was essential in ancient times to survive physical… Expand
The Interaction of Exercise, Stress, and Inflammation on Growth
TLDR
The cellular, molecular, and physiological interactions of exercise, stress, and immune function in the context of normal and abnormal growth are highlighted in this chapter. Expand
Dyslipidemia Induced by Stress
TLDR
The terms eustress and efficient allostasis describe facile adaptation, such as a quick peak stress response to mobilize energy to deal with an acute stressor, and a rapid return to baseline, when the stressor terminated. Expand
Influence of Regular Physical Exercise on Increased Caloric Intake Triggered by Stressors
Social distress may be a major source of allostatic load in contemporary life, contributing to the development of metabolicrelated diseases in industrial societies. Indeed, the standard signals forExpand
The stress-buffering effect of acute exercise: Evidence for HPA axis negative feedback
TLDR
Findings indicate that the acute stress-buffering effect of exercise relies on negative feedback mechanisms, and positive affective changes after exercise appear as important moderators largely accounting for the effects related to physical fitness. Expand
Effects of treadmill exercise on hypoactivity of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis induced by chronic administration of corticosterone in rats
TLDR
Treadmill exercise recovered the dysregulated hypoactivity of the HPA axis induced by corticosterone administration for 19 days, suggesting that treadmill exercise may aid recovery of hypoactivated HPAaxis dysregulation in psychological diseases such as post-traumatic stress disorder. Expand
Modulation of catecholamine-synthesizing enzymes in adrenal medulla and stellate ganglia by treadmill exercise of stressed rats
TLDR
T treadmill exercise leads to a decreased gene transcription of catecholamine biosynthetic enzymes in stellate ganglia and attenuation of cardiac noradrenaline production in stressful situations, which may be linked to the beneficial effects of treadmill exercise on cardiovascular system in stressed animals. Expand
Hypothalamo-pituitary adrenal axis and sympatho-adrenal medullary system responses to psychological stress were not attenuated in women with elevated physical fitness levels
TLDR
Findings suggest that, for low-fit women aged 30–50 years, the response of HPA axis and SAM system to a potent acute psychological stressor is not compromised compared to that in high-fitWomen. Expand
How mental stress affects endothelial function
TLDR
Inhibition of cortisol and endothelin-1 production, prevention of pro-inflammatory mediator accumulation, hypnotics, mirthful laughter, humor orientation, and lifestyle modification would contribute to the prevention and treatment for stress-related endothelial dysfunction and future serious cardiovascular disease. Expand
Effects of training background to acute psychological stress biomarkers
TLDR
It is concluded that people with different training backgrounds react differently to psychological stress, as seen in the values of the biomarkers. Expand
Impact of CBG deficiency on emotional and cognitive processes
TLDR
It is shown that the lower glucocorticoid levels observed in Cbg ko mice stems from their higher clearance from plasma, and the important role of CBG influencing the broad range of actions of glucoc Corticoids by modulating their levels and availability is reinforced. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that environmental, perinatal and genetic factors induce neuroendocrine perturbations followed by abdominal obesity with its associated comorbidities. Expand
Visceral fat accumulation: the missing link between psychosocial factors and cardiovascular disease?
TLDR
It is postulated that increased WHR is a symptom of chronic hypothalamic arousal as a result of a defeat reaction to psychosocial pressures, which might lead to the development of disease via circulatory and metabolic derangements. Expand
The HPA axis response to stress in women: effects of aging and fitness
TLDR
It is shown that among unfit women, aging is associated with greater HPA axis reactivity to psychological stress, and that higher aerobic fitness among older women can attenuate these age-related changes as indicated by a blunted cortisol response to Psychological stress. Expand

A link between excessive action of cortisol and fatty acids in predisposing to insulin resistance and the pathologies that are associated with the metabolic syndrome is demonstrated. Expand

Under normal conditions, this inhibitory influence of glucocorticoids may prevent lasting hypophagia in obesity with degrees of hypercorticism, and may contribute to “leptin resistance,” whose etiology is still little understood. Expand

TLDR
Results of studies in vitro indicate that this difference is diminished at the menopause, and restored by estrogen substitution, suggesting that the functional effects of estrogens in women are similar to those of T in men, and fits well with physiological, and clinical conditions with increased visceral fat mass.
