Abstract

Stress is an inescapable part of the modern life. It is an adaptive response and the body’s reaction to events. Stress also plays a great role in the development of hypertension. The evidence is based on the indicators that people with high blood pressure experience an increase in overall activity of nervous system involved in response to stress. It is also known that people with hypertension have increased activity of particular structures in the brain that respond to stress. Finally, people with high blood pressure release higher amount of the stress hormones than people with normal blood pressure.
