Abstract(s)Chronic stress increases the risk of neuropsychiatric, cardiovascular and endocrine diseases. Interestingly, the susceptibility to stress among individuals is variable and only some experience stress-related diseases. The determinants of resilience (the concept of resistance to chronic stress) are still not well understood. Their knowledge may contribute to the development of strategies to tackle stress-related disorders from a preventive perspective. Recent evidences show that the autonomic nervous system may play a role in the susceptibility to stress and may be used as a marker of resilience. Departing from that point, this short review will provide a perspective of the role of the autonomic nervous system in the susceptibility to the stress response.
