The concept of homeostasis is well established in medicine and physiology. In contrast, allostasis is a relatively new idea of 'viability through change'. This book, the first edited volume to focus on allostasis, orients the reader by addressing basic physiological regulatory systems, and examining bodily regulation under duress. It integrates the basic concepts of physiological homeostasis with disorders such as depression, stress, anxiety and addiction. It will appeal to graduate students, medical students, and researchers working in physiology, epidemiology, endocrinology, neuroendocrinology, neuroscience, and psychology.
