||Reactivity and recovery from different types of work measured by catecholamines and cortisol: A systematic literature overview
||May 2000, Vol.57, No.5, p.298-315. 109 ref.
||A systematic literature search was performed on the topic of neuroendocrine reactivity and recovery from mental, combined mental and physical, or physical tasks. Studies with catecholamines or cortisol as effect variables measured in blood, urine or saliva were taken into consideration. For reactivity and recovery up to 1 hour after performing the task, half of the studies considered physical tasks and more than two thirds showed incomplete recovery compared with baseline excretion of catecholamines and cortisol. Three days after the task was performed, recovery was often incomplete for cortisol after a combination of mentally and physically demanding tasks, and less often after solely mental or physical tasks.
