Stress has been demonstrated to have wide-ranging effects on the nervous and immune systems, psychological processes, and health. This symposium will explore adaptive and maladaptive aspects of acute and chronic stress from multiple perspectives. Some of the leading stress researchers will present their latest research on how stress affects neural activity, immune responses, and the processing of memories. Implications for mental health and treatments will also be explored.
