Stress and Health: Biological and Psychological Interactions, Third Edition, examines the biological links between our emotions and changes in our health. Author William R. Lovallo provides an introduction to the concept of psychological stress, its physiological manifestations, and its effects on health and disease. The book concentrates on the psychophysiological relationship between cognitions, emotions, brain functions, and the peripheral mechanisms by which the body is regulated. The third edition now covers two new and significant areas of emerging research. Our early life experiences our now known to alter key stress responsive systems at the level of gene expression with far reaching consequences for the individual throughout the life course, and this topic is now explored thoroughly. The new edition also covers the latest in our understanding of large, normal, and small stress responses and what these different levels of responses may mean for our overall health and well-being.
