Stress and Distress in Response to Psychosocial Stimuli is a book based on a study spanning over four years about the different psychosocial stimuli and the body's different reactions towards them, especially stress and disease. The book includes a short introduction to psychosocial stimuli and its physiological mechanisms, psychophysiological reactions; psychosomatic research; and psychosocially mediated disease and its hypotheses. Also covered are the study's methodological considerations; sympathoadrenomedullary responses to pleasant and unpleasant pyschosocial stimuli; sympathoadrenomedullary activity; the effects of work conditions; the emotional reactions during visual stimulation; stressor-induced changes to plasma lipids; and the psychological and physiological reactions and psychomotor performance during prolonged and complex stressor exposure. The text is recommended for psychologists and medical doctors, especially those who wish to study further about psychosocial stimuli and what it can do to the human body.
