BIOL 3710 - The Biology of Stress

What exactly is stress? When is it a good thing; when & why does it become damaging? In this course, we will study how the body responds to physical and psychological stressors. And, we will examine how the physiological mechanisms by which the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis and corticosteroids mediate both positive and negative effects of stress. Understanding of these mechanisms, we can consider how best to prevent damage from stress.
