Applied Math Talk: Dynamics of neuroendocrine stress response given by Prof. Maria Rita D’Orsogna (CSUN)

October 21, 2019 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is a neuroendocrine system that regulates numerous physiological processes. Disruptions are correlated with stress-related diseases such as PTSD and major depression. We characterize "normal" and "diseased" states of the HPA axis as basins of attraction of a dynamical system describing the main hormones regulated by the HPA axis. Our model includes […]
