Stress Hormone Blocks Testosterone’s Effects

Stress Hormone Blocks Testosterone’s Effects

Check out this fascinating study from the University of Texas at Austin about how high levels of the stress hormone cortisol play a crucial role in blocking testosterone’s influence on competition and domination.

As the press release explains — the findings, available online in Hormones and Behavior — show that “when cortisol, a hormone released in the body in response to threat, increases, the body is mobilized to escape danger, rather than respond to any influence that testosterone is having on behavior.”
