'Stress -- From molecules to behavior'

Stress is one of the most frequently used 'buzz words' across Western societies with an array of meanings ranging from scientifically defined experimental conditions for laboratory animals to a casual word for a nuisance. In humans, stress is mostly used as a term for psychological hardship and it causes a variety of conditions with, psychological, medical and sociological implications.

There have been many studies on the behaviour and physiological effects of stress, but now,for the first time, Professors Hermona Soreq, Alon Friedman and Daniela Kaufer provide in their new title 'Stress From Molecules to Behavior' a comprehensive overview of the molecular basis of stress from a neurolobiological and immunological perspective.

Stress From Molecules to Behavior explores the responses and changes of the nervous system upon stress exposure, providing a unique and fundamental insight into the molecular, physiological and behavioural basis of the stress response of a whole organism.

"It is well known that stress response may induce profound behavioural changes as well as physiological changes in the nervous and the immune system," said Editor Professor Hermona Soreq from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. "Unfavourable consequences of stress response are a common health problem in many societies, but studying the underlying molecular mechanisms driving stress induced changes opens the possibility of more targeted therapeutic approaches."

Stress From Molecules to Behavior takes a strong interdisciplinary approach, dealing with stress from a neurological, medical, behavioural, immunological and cellular angle. This approach provides an insight into the molecular alterations of the nervous system in response to stress, the molecular basis of stress related cognition and behavioural changes, and explores the interplay between the nervous and the immune system upon stress exposure.

Key sections of the title deal with neurotransmitter release, hormone metabolism and neurogenesis in response to stress stimuli, as well as the consequences of these factors on the immune system and the consequential behaviour of individuals.

Edited by leading experts in the field and summarising the latest research advances across the disciplines, this ready reference is an invaluable resource for clinicians dealing with stress-related disorders, neurologists, biomedical researchers, medical students and biomedical researchers working in the field as well as for pharmacology and biotech companies
