The result of repolarization is the return of the +50 mV to a resting –70 mV, ready for subsequent discharge. 2. Basic Neuroanatomy From the preceding discussion of basic neural transmission, the next step to be undertaken is an analysis of the fundamental anatomical structures involved in the human stress response. The nervous systems, the functional structures within which millions upon millions of neurons reside, may be classified from either an anatomical or a functional perspective. For the sake of parsimony, we describe the nervous systems from an anatomical perspective.

Three neural axes comprise the neural stress response: (1) the sympathetic nervous system, (2) the parasympathetic nervous system, and, (3) the neuromuscular nervous system. These neural pathways are the first 30 CHAPTER 2 of all stress response axes to become activated during stress arousal. This phenomenon is based upon the fact that the structure of these pathways, from origination to target-organ innervation, are completely neural, and therefore quickest. It is clear that ANS activation occurs during states of emotional arousal in human beings (Duffy, 1962; Johnson & Spalding, 1974; Lindsley, 1951).

2001). Psychosocial stressors are either real or imagined environmental events that “set the stage” for the elicitation of the stress response. They cannot directly “cause” the stress response but must work through cognitive appraisal mechanics. Most stressors are, indeed, psychosocial stressors. ” Biogenic stressors, however, actually “cause” the elicitation of the stress response. Such stimuli bypass the higher cognitive appraisal mechanisms and work directly on affective and neurological triggering nuclei.
