In contrast to homeostasis, allostasis refers to the relatively new idea of "viability through change." This book addresses basic physiological regulatory systems, and examines bodily regulation under duress. It integrates the basic concepts of physiological homeostasis with disorders such as depression, stress, anxiety and addiction. It will interest graduate students, medical students, and researchers in physiology, epidemiology, endocrinology, neuroendocrinology, neuroscience, and psychology.

Book Description:

The concept of homeostasis is well established in medicine and physiology. In contrast, allostasis is a relatively new idea of 'viability through change'. This book, the first edited volume to focus on allostasis, orients the reader by addressing basic physiological regulatory systems, and examining bodily regulation under duress. It integrates the basic concepts of physiological homeostasis with disorders such as depression, stress, anxiety and addiction. It will appeal to graduate students, medical students, and researchers working in physiology, epidemiology, endocrinology, neuroendocrinology, neuroscience, and psychology.

Review:

Review of the hardback: 'This book ... is very welcome as it goes a good way towards introducing readers of all levels to the concept ... it is well balanced ... this book will be an important text for those who want to know more.' Biologist

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The concept of homeostasis, the maintenance of the internal physiological environment of an organism within tolerable limits, is well established in medicine and physiology. In contrast, allostasis is a relatively new idea of 'viability through change'. With allostatic regulation by cephalic involvement, the body adapts to potentially diverse and dangerous situations through the activation of neural, hormonal, or immunological mechanisms. Allostasis explains how regulatory events maintain organismic viability, or not, in diverse contexts with varying set points of bodily needs and competing motivations. This 2005 book introduces the concept of allostasis and sets it alongside traditional views of homeostasis. It addresses basic regulatory systems and examines the behavior of bodily regulation under duress. The basic concepts of physiological homeostasis are integrated with disorders like depression, stress, anxiety and addiction. It will therefore appeal to graduate students, medical students and researchers working in physiology, epidemiology, endocrinology, neuroendocrinology, neuroscience, and psychology.
