It publishes primary research papers, invited reviews and short communications that deal with the mechanisms of stressful stimulation, including within and between individuals; the physiological and behavioural responses to stress, and their regulation, in both the short and long term; adaptive mechanisms, coping strategies and the pathological consequences of stress. It publishes clinical studies in humans as well as basic studies in laboratory animals, aiming to cover the latest developments in physiology, neurobiology, molecular biology, genetics research, immunology, and behavioural studies as they affect the understanding of stress, and of its adverse consequences and their amelioration.
