flourished during this time, yet many remain unfamiliar with the latest concepts on these topics. This intense public, research, and clinical interest in stress is reflected in our edited Handbook of Stress series, each volume addressing a specific area within the field of stress edited by experts in each subfield. Stress Genetics, Epigenetics, and Genomics, Volume 4 in the series, covers the influence genetics, epigenetics, and genomics have on physiologic stress and provides a quick orientation to the subject for research, clinic, and everyday life. Integrated closely with new behavioral findings and relevance to human conditions, the concepts and data in this volume offer readers cutting-edge information on the genetics of stress. This volume is of prime interest to neuroscientists, clinicians, researchers, academics, and students in Neuroendocrinology, Neuroscience, Biomedicine, Endocrinology, Psychology, Psychiatry and some aspects of the Social Sciences including stress and its management in the workplace from a preventative, diagnostic, and therapeutic perspective.
