Abstract:

Contents Stresses that affect performance Procedures for assaying the effects of stress Summary of present knowledge of catechol amines Occurrence metabolism excretion biologic behavior release, turnover, physiologic activities, psychologic effects, and interrelationships with other hormones Methodology in analyses of catechol amines in urine, in plasma, and in tissues Experiments relative to the correlation between the secretion or excretion of catechol amines and the various types of stress in the assessment of performance increments and decrements or quantitation of stress by catechol amine analysis in humans and animals Difficulties associated with the correlation of catechol amine release and performance and suggested areas for additional research Unanswered questions relative to the correlation between catechol amine release and stress and performance Military applicability of the correlation between catechol amines release and the assessment of performance increments and decrements.
