Stress is a complex multifactorial reaction that produces changes in the organic system of the human being. These changes range from physiological modifications to psychological ones. The acute stress response is an adaptive response that has been modulated during the development of the human species, making it very efficient when dealing with anecdotal events that endanger the physical integrity or life of the subject. When this stress response is maintained over time, which at the acute level is a highly adaptive response, it begins to become the basis of a multitude of pathologies at the physiological and psychological level.
The contextual interpretation that subjects can make will mark, in one way or another, their relationship with it and will be the basis that defines their perception of uncontrollability, threat, or uncertainty regarding the environment to which it relates. A contextual misunderstanding due to a specific psychological profile can cause a stress response, in the same way that exposure to contextual stressors, whether physical, mechanical, environmental, or even social, can trigger this acute response. A multitude of professions, from military, to police, firefighters, health personnel, drivers, miners, teachers, and elite athletes are exposed to highly eliciting environments, which produce in them different stress responses with different manifestations at the psychophysiological level. For a better understanding of all these complex processes, the present Special Issue is proposed, in which it is intended to analyze the psychophysiological responses to the state. This Special Issue intends to provide an overview of the most recent advances in multidisciplinary research connected to psychophysiology of stress. Research articles on topics associated with the modifications at the psychophysiological level due to stress are invited.
