Stress: An Endocrinology Perspective

Nandan Gupta*, Rishabha Malviya

Selye first invented the term "stress" in 1946. Stress encompasses three related topics: environmental changes/stimuli that cause "stress" (subsequently referred to as stressors); physiological and psychological responses to those stimuli (subsequently referred to as the stress response); and diseases that result from an overstimulation of the physiological and psychological responses (subsequently referred to as the stress response) (subsequently called chronic stress effects). Two types of hormones are regarded to form the central components of the endocrine response, despite the fact that many hormones have been identified as playing a part in the vertebrate stress response.
