Summary This book comprehensively covers the molecular basis of stress responses of the nervous system, providing a unique and fundamental insight into the molecular, physiological and behavioral basis of the stress response of a whole organism. Edited by leading experts in the field and summarizing the latest research advances in this area, this ready reference is an invaluable resource for clinicians dealing with stress-related disorders, biomedical researchers working in the field as well as for pharmacology and biotech companies.
