Article for Week of 9/26: Stress


Here is the article about stress for the week of Septemer 26. This is an article by one of the most famous stress and psychology researchers, Robert Sapolsky. It's mainly about how stress--a psychological variable--impacts our brain, an undeniably physical part of ourselves. You'll hear more from Dr. Sapolsky in a video we'll watch in class on how important social relationships are to our experience of stress and its impact on our bodies.
