Wolves howl because they care
When a member of the wolf pack leaves the group, the howling by those left behind isn't a reflection of stress but of the quality of their relationships.

Predicting chronic pain in whiplash injuries
While most people recover from whiplash injuries within a few months, about 25 percent have long-term pain and disability for many months or years. Using special MRI imaging, scientists identified, within the first one and two weeks of the injury, which patients will develop chronic pain and disability. This is the earliest these patients have been identified and will enable faster treatment. The imaging revealed large amounts of fat infiltrating the patients' neck muscles, indicating rapid atrophy.

Early-life environments shape development of stress behaviors and learning abilities in mice
Genetically identical mice placed in different environments both pre- and post-natally differ dramatically as adults in their stress responses and learning abilities. The finding suggests that pre- and post-natal maternal environments, when taken together, play a strong role in determining the stress profile and cognitive development of identical mice. (2003-05-12)

Stress and alcohol 'feed' each other
Acute stress is thought to precipitate alcohol drinking. Yet the ways that acute stress can increase alcohol consumption are unclear. A new study investigated whether different phases of response to an acute stressor can alter the subjective effects of alcohol.

Mechanism links substance abuse with vulnerability to depression
A new study finds that repeated cocaine use increases the severity of depressive-like responses in a mouse model of depression and identifies a mechanism that underlies this cocaine-induced vulnerability. The research, published by Cell Press in the Aug. 25 issue of the journal Neuron, may guide development of new treatments for mood disorders associated with substance abuse. (2011-08-24)

Stress can lead to risky decisions
MIT neuroscientists have discovered making decisions that require weighing pros and cons of two choices is dramatically affected by chronic stress. In a study of rats and mice, they found stressed animals were far likelier to choose high-risk, high-payoff options. They also found that impairments of a specific brain circuit underlie this abnormal decision making. (2017-11-16)

This has important ramifications for laboratory and clinical testing. (2008-10-14)

Adults who go to bed lonely get stress hormone boost next morning
A study that takes a rare look at the physiological, social and emotional dynamics of day-to-day experiences in real-life settings shows that when older adults go to bed lonely, sad or overwhelmed, they have elevated levels of cortisol shortly after waking the next morning. This cues the body on a day-to-day basis that it is time to rev up to deal with loneliness and other negative experiences, according to the Northwestern University researcher who led the study. (2006-10-30)

Vitamin C could ease muscle fatigue in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients

Financial problems linked to depression symptoms in breast cancer patients
Women with breast cancer are most likely to suffer from symptoms of depression if they also have other sources of stress in their lives -- particularly financial difficulties, according to a new study. Researchers at Ohio State University's Comprehensive Cancer Center found that cancer-related traumatic stress was just one component that was linked to depression symptoms. (2003-11-16)

Mitochondria control stem cell fate
What happens in intestinal epithelial cells during a chronic illness? Basic research conducted at the Technical University of Munich addressed this question by generating a new model system. Functioning mitochondria play a decisive role in cellular homeostasis, but what happens when an important player of the anti-stress program in mitochondria is switched off? On one hand, this leads to the loss of stem cells, but on the other, it sets healing processes in motion. (2016-10-27)

Chronic opioid treatment may increase PTSD risk
Long-term (chronic) treatment with opioids, such as morphine, prior to trauma enhances fear learning in mice, according to a study published in Neuropsychopharmacology. The findings, which link chronic opioid treatment before a traumatic event with responses to subsequent stressful events, may suggest a possible mechanism underlying the frequent co-occurrence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and opioid dependence. (2019-12-01)

Family caregivers of dementia patients may be more vulnerable to illness

Study links PTSD to hidden head injuries suffered in combat
Even when brain injury is so subtle that it can only be detected by an ultra-sensitive imaging test, the injury might predispose soldiers in combat to post-traumatic stress disorder, according to a University of Rochester Medical Center study. (2012-06-06)

Link found between chronic inflammation and risk for Alzheimer's disease
While it is widely shown that possessing the ApoE4 gene is the major genetic risk factor of Alzheimer's disease (AD), not all ApoE4 carriers develop AD. For the first time, researchers at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have shown that ApoE4 linked with chronic inflammation dramatically increases the risk for AD. This can be detected by sequential measurements of C-reactive protein, a common clinical test which can be could be done routinely in a clinical setting. (2018-10-19)

Hypersensitivity to pain produced by early life stress is worsened by later stress exposure

Short-term stress enhances anti-tumor activity in mice, Stanford study shows
Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have shown that, at least in laboratory mice, bouts of relatively short-term stress can boost the immune system and protect against one type of cancer. Furthermore, the beneficial effects of this occasional angst seem to last for weeks after the stressful situation has ended. The finding is surprising because chronic stress has the opposite effect -- taxing the immune system and increasing susceptibility to disease. (2009-09-21)
