Abstract

Stress impacts both the quality and length of life (Sapolsky, 1998), but the stress of learning is yet to be understood. Few studies exist in the literature about learning stress. The lack of technology contributed to this deficiency until recently. Invasive technologies made it difficult to study people in vivo. Recent theoretical and technological developments changed this situation. New holistic theories permit the inclusion of biological measurements, brain research developments enable the research of learning physiology, and advanced technology facilitates field-data collection.
