Abstract

The previous chapters of this text have described the nature of the stress response. However, no discussion of the nature of any given phenomenon is complete without describing how to identify or measure the phenomenon of interest. The purpose of this chapter is briefly to introduce the reader to the most commonly used criteria for the measurement of the stress response in human beings. Our discussion will entail the most commonly used physiological and psychological criteria.
