	           The International Journal on the Biology of Stress


Aims and Scope
The journal Stress aims to provide scientists involved in basic stress
research with the possibility of reading a more integrated view of the
field. Peer reviewed papers, invited reviews and short communications will
deal with interdisciplinary aspects of stress in terms of the physiological
activity, its regulation and factors affecting such regulation.
Stress will publish the latest developments in physiology, neurobiology,
molecular biology, genetics research, immunology, and behavioural studies as
they impact on the understanding of stress and the pathology of stress.
Specific approaches may include transgenic animals, electrophysiology,
histochemistry, neurochemistry, neuroanatomy, endocrinology, autonomic
physiology, immunology, behavioural studies and clinical measures.
