Background: Stress has many effects on cognition that depend on its intensity, duration, origin, and magnitude (Sandi, 2013). Activation of stress results in the production and release of glucocorticosteroids. Because of the lipophilic properties of glucocorticosteroids, they can diffuse through the blood-brain barrier and exert long-term effects on processing and cognition (Sandi, 2013).
Objective: To correlate between cognitive function and academic stress.
Design: Correlational survey was adopted for the study.
Settings: Neikarapatti village, Salem.
