Chronic stress induces enduring behavioral and biological changes. Chronic stressors are not identical and have varying properties such as intensity, duration, and quality. Chronic social isolation stress (SIS) and chronic foot shock (FS) differ from one another in that SIS presents a continuous stress whereas FS dispenses a series of acute stressors. Chronic stressors of varying properties induce differences in the modulation of behavior and biology, suggesting that the neural pathways underlying these behavioral variations may differ. Since we are constantly subjected to various types and levels of chronic stress throughout our lifetime, examining their differentiation and significance is valuable.
