    Horm Behav 49:346-52. 2006
    ..These studies add to the evidence that individual differences greatly influence whether a social stressor like losing a contest activates the HPA axis in humans...

    University of Michigan, Department of Psychology, Ann Arbor, MI 48109 1043, USA
    Biol Psychol 74:104-7. 2007
    ..These findings suggest that progesterone is released from the adrenal along with cortisol in humans, due to general adrenal activation and/or possibly as an additional negative feedback mechanism to down-regulate the stress response...
