Stress is any stimulus that creates the feeling of fear or hurt. Fear can be imagined or real. Hurt can be physical or emotional. Stress activates neurons located in the primitive part of the brain causing the release of stress hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline, growth hormone, and others.

Each person is remembered by his or her way of responding to stress. The common behavioral responses to stress are classified into three categories: associative response, anticipatory response, and afterthought response.

Without resolution, active nerve cells will rob nutrients and energy from others, leading to other problems such as inhibition of appetite, forgetfulness, inability to feel enjoyment, and depression.
