Abstract

The preceding chapters have dealt with the psychologic aspects of the chain of events leading from the social stimulus past the defenses of social assets to the arousal of the autonomic nervous system and endocrines (see Fig. 1–3). In light of newly discovered principles of the organization of the brain that give insight into the mechanisms of response to stress, this chapter discusses aspects of the neural basis of behavior of importance in controlling neuroendocrine responses to social stimuli.
