Abstract

Resilience refers to a person's ability to successfully adapt to acute stress, trauma or more chronic forms of adversity, maintaining psychological well-being. Recent years have seen a lot of research into the neurobiological factors and mechanism that characterize resilient individuals. It has shown that resilience is mediated by adaptive changes in several neural circuits involving numerous neurotransmitter and molecular pathways. Much more study is required to achieve a deeper understanding the genetic, biological, and psychological underpinnings of resilience, as well as the interactions between these factors.
