9783527312214: Stress in Health and Disease

This book is the first to address the most urgent issues, combining a solid basic research approach with applied individual and stress issues, including interventions. Throughout, the focus is on our latest knowledge about various causes of stress and its neuro-cognitive and biological implications. World-renowned authors from Europe as well as the US describe how stress affects the brain of young people as well as adults. They cover the topic from all perspectives, showing how stress affects life in general, from the societal and organizational level to the individual, organ and molecular level. While the book clearly points out stress as a risk factor to health, it also offers a number of evidence-based methods to cope with stress and even ride the positive energy of stress - both as an individual, as well as what managers can do to create a healthy and productive workplace.
Written in a reader-friendly and appealing style, the book provides real-life examples from various laboratories, as well as such events as the Volvo Ocean Race, the largest around-the-globe sailing competition.
Essential reading for clinicians and biologists, as well as for a wide range of students, including medicine and public health, but also managers and HR staff.

With a Foreword by Nobel Laureate Professor Arvid Carlsson (Medicine 2000).

Review:

This outstanding book provides a comprehensive overview of the vast public health challenges posed by stress. Editors Arnetz and Ekman, international experts in stress medicine and neurochemistry, have recruited a stellar list of contributors who clearly and authoritatively describe how stress has measurable molecular, cellular, metabolic, behavioral, organizational, and societal consequences. Moreover, this fine volume also offers important and novel insights into the diverse paths for potential interventions, from individual to organizational. The depth and breadth make this an essential book for students, researchers, and practitioners.
