Making Sense of Stress 2017

Year of Stress

In 2017, we will be ‘Making Sense of Stress’ across all areas of our work including events, outreach, education, policy, communications, and our journals.


Join and follow the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #YearOfStress.


Events


In January, Dr Kimberley Bennett’s gave a  lecture on ‘Making sense of stress in the wild’, at the Association for Science Education’s (ASE’s) Annual Conference.


In April, we are holding a Topic Meeting on ‘The Neurobiology of Stress' as part of BNA 2017: Festival of Neuroscience in Birmingham. It will include four symposia:


  • Stress and Cardiovascular Control
  • Behavioural and Emotional Aspects of Stress
  • Influences of Stress on Neurodegeneration/Neurogenesis
  • The Neuroendocrinology of Stress


There will also be a plenary lecture on 'The neurobiology of stress and stress-related disorders' by Alon Chen of the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry.


Policy


To give a glimpse into what people in the UK find the most stressful, we are conducting a YouGov Survey called 'Stressed out UK'. Stay tuned for discussions and a summary of the survey results.

Keep an eye out for the September issue of Physiology News, which will be themed around stress.
