About this Research Topic
Stress has a broad impact on animals’ behavior, profoundly affects brain regions involved on cognition and motivation and, when maladaptive, is also a trigger for neuropsychiatric disorders. This Research Topic focuses on advances in understanding how stressful events impact cognition and motivation, and the neural mechanisms that mediate their effects. Additionally, this Research Topic seeks to highlight the most recent efforts to identify individual factors that can alter an organism’s response to stressful stimuli, and to describe pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions that can mitigate the deleterious effects of stress on cognition and motivation.
We welcome all research articles, review papers, brief communications, and commentary on topics related to chronic stress effects and resilience and that will serve to support new clinical interventions for stress-related disorders.
Keywords: stress, cognition, motivation, behavior
