How does one's sex and gender influence stress?

How does one's sex and gender influence stress? To answer this and other fascinating questions, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Institute (CIHR) of Gender and Health has just recently launched "What a Difference Sex and Gender Make: A Gender, Sex and Health Research Casebook". In their chapter entitled "Sex and gender in stress research: the metamorphosis of a field", Robert-Paul Juster and Sonia Lupien discuss definitions of stress, historical changes in research and theory, and the interaction of sex and gender on chronic stress. We encourage you to check out this important casebook that embodies CIHR's desire to transmit research findings for all Canadians.
