Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue delves into the intricate connections between physiological, neurophysiological, and behavioral responses obtained during stressful scenarios, training programs, therapeutic interventions, and illnesses. In an era marked by constant challenges, understanding how the human body and mind react to stimuli is crucial. This research addresses the pressing need to unravel the underlying mechanisms governing these responses. By exploring gaps in existing knowledge, our aim is to emphasize the critical necessity for further investigation and refinement.

Contributions to this issue will illuminate complex pathways linking physiological, neurophysiological, and behavioral responses, offering insights that inform both academia and practical applications. The outcomes are poised to refine interventions, enhance training methodologies, improve therapeutic practices, and deepen our understanding in these topics.

Therefore, this Special Issue aims to collate original research, review articles, cross-sectional studies or case reports focused on these aspects.
