    The sci-hub link no longer works, after so long thats not surprising but I cant really tell what they're saying from the abstract, not sure how to search for the full paper anywhere & am too gormless to do so right now anyway, but i'sd be interested to know what they're saying about cortisol

    @JemPD, here is one sci-hub link. You may have to insert a captcha.

    If this doesn't work in your country, try to insert the doi-number (in this case: 10.1016/j.biopsycho.2018.05.016) here.

    Have you misread? Cortisol is not mentioned in the abstract as far as I can see. They are discussing a brain study. The word 'Cortical' is used, referring to the cerebral cortex.

    Edit: I found it on Sci hub here:

    Thanks for that @Lisa108

    I'm way too foggy to even read the whole paper, but I managed the Conclusions.

    But i still cant really make head or tale of what they're saying. Would be very appreciative if anyone could do a lay-language summary.

    I'm very interested in anything to do with cortisol/adrenaline/stress hormones, because when i get stressed - anxious/afraid/excited or angry, ALL my symptoms improve hugely.... And there is only a down side if i don't remember that the improvement is an illusion, & act as if i'm as 'well' as I feel - leading to crashing badly. But always always the more stressed i am the better I - temporarily- feel.
