The Effects of Stress on the Brain

In April we also recognize Stress Awareness Month- a national, cooperative effort to inform society about the dangers of stress, successful coping strategies, as well as harmful misconceptions. Stress can be defined as the brain’s response to any demand. It produces a hormone called cortisol, which in large amounts, is detrimental to many parts of the body. Researchers continue to study how elevated levels of cortisol can poorly affect learning and memory, the immune system, bone density, weight loss, cholesterol, heart disease, and more. And they’re finding out why- because stress and its accompanying cortisol production actually changes the structure of the brain over time.
