About this book

Social stress has emerged as a research front in the neurosciences, and this volume highlights recent insights in brain mechanisms and methodological advances. The topics range from the evolutionary origins of coping with social challenges to neural mechanism-driven focus on novel treatment targets. The parallel presentation of work with animal models and human subjects is bound to be useful to a broad research community.
