Investigators Study Orexins’ Role in Resilience to Stress

Why do some of us get stressed out while others seem to roll with life’s punches? That is the big question in the field of stress neurobiology, and to get closer to the answer, researchers at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are exploring peptides called orexins as potential mediators of resilience or vulnerability to the effects of stress.
