Stress and Catecholamines Up-Regulate Proinflammatory Cytokine Production and Neutrophil Infiltration in Experimental Colitis | BrainImmune: Trends in Neuroendocrine Immunology

Stress and Catecholamines Up-Regulate Proinflammatory Cytokine Production and Neutrophil Infiltration in Experimental Colitis | BrainImmune: Trends in Neuroendocrine Immunology | Stress-Immune Interactions: Implications | Scoop.it
A recent Brain, Behavior and Immunity study indicates that psychological stress contributes to the exacerbation of the murine model of colitis by promoting the mobilization and entry of neutrophils in the colon. This appears to be achieved by the up-regulation of pro-inflammatory cytokine and chemokine production and STAT3 signaling, and involves β1/β2-adrenergic receptors activation. Inflammatory …

Expert Explains Why Workplace Stress Is Killing All Of Us

Expert Explains Why Workplace Stress Is Killing All Of Us | Stress-Immune Interactions: Implications | Scoop.it
Falling sales, unrealistic deadlines, disagreements with a colleague are all physical threats. ...


We all know that chronic stress in the workplace isn't good for us, but staying away from it isn't realistic with today's high expectations.


According to Shlomo Breznitz, cognitive psychologist and author of Maximum Brainpower: Challenging the Brain for Health and Wisdom, healthcare costs for stressed workers are 46 percent more expensive than workers who don't deal with chronic stress. This adds up to an estimated $600 more per person.


And "multitaskers face the greatest stress threat, as the constant effort to switch tasks hampers the formation of short-term memory."

Stress Is Making You Micromanage, Which Is Making Everything Worse 

Stress Is Making You Micromanage, Which Is Making Everything Worse  | Stress-Immune Interactions: Implications | Scoop.it

Are you a micromanager? You will probably say no. Maybe you self-deprecatingly call yourself a “control freak.” Or just “hands-on.” You just “care too much.”

 

And it’s true: You do feel a certain need for a sense of control over your work. You are responsible, after all–perhaps more responsible than some of your coworkers or direct reports. You’re afraid of mistakes and believe that if something needs to be done well, you’d better do it yourself. But this isn’t just because you’re an “independent self-starter” who holds their work to a high standard. It might be that, too, but it’s probably also because you’re feeling stressed.

CCM Consultancy's curator insight, October 22, 2017 1:44 AM

Work-related stress is a likely culprit. When you feel overwhelmed, you worry that you don’t have a good handle on things–so what do you do? You tighten your grip on everything. The first step to loosening it up (and reducing your own stress in the process) is simply recognizing the impact that your micromanaging is having.

Stress Causes Many Kinds of Neuroplasticity

Stress Causes Many Kinds of Neuroplasticity | Stress-Immune Interactions: Implications | Scoop.it
Stress causes many kinds of neuroplasticity in various critical brain regions with perceptions of psychological & social distress, danger & physical illness

 

"Stress can be caused by sudden physical danger. In evolution, animals developed elaborate mechanisms for rapidly identifying danger and responding with fight or flight responses. When studying humans, it became apparent that the same responses can occur with psychological, interpersonal and work related stress. Further study shows that animals, also, respond to psychological stress in the same ways. Recent research finds responses to stress are much more complex than fight and flight responses. There are a large number of factors that are triggered during different types, intensities and durations of stress. Important regions of the brain, such as the pre frontal cortex, hippocampus, amygdala and hypothalamus all have different elaborate neuroplastic changes with different types of stress and with different intensities and durations. Stress causes many kinds of neuroplasticity in wide ranging circuits throughout the brain."
