    Scope and Content of Collection

    "The Institute of Environmental Stress, established February 1965, is an interdepartmental organization providing broad coverage of the borderline fields that relate human function to the complex and changing environments to which man and other organisms are continuously exposed. Its primary purpose is to further fundamental research of an interdisciplinary nature towards an understanding of the adaptive potentials of organisms. These goals are being accomplished by undertaking research in the many fields relating to problems of function and organization, by contributing to the training of investigators for independent research, and by developing and disseminating information regarding these processes in the interest of the social and scientific communities. It provides facilities and support for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctorate research. The areas of research covered involve not only the external environmental stresses but are also concerned with the aging process, exercise, cardio-respiratory diseases, medial engineering, and neurophysiology. The Institute is also the center for the local unit of the Regional Medical Program for Cancer, Heart Disease, and Stroke. The disciplines involved in Institute activities come from the biological, medical, and behavioral sciences. The University departments presently represented are Anthropology, Biological Sciences, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, Health Services, Nutrition, Physical Education, and Psychology."
