Abstract

The stress response, by virtue of release of glucocorticoids and catecholamines and by modifying the endocrine, neural, and immune responses, can impact the function of the fibroblasts and myofibroblasts that reside throughout the body and more specifically in the fascia, a ubiquitous and multi-functional connective tissue that supports the body. In the present paper, we review these stress-induced responses relying on psychoneuroendocrineimmunology.
