The article reports on a study that was conducted to examine the effect of oral presentation on salivary 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG) and cortisol concentrations in training physicians. The study analyzed concentrations of salivary MHPG (sMHPG) and cortisol levels in a sample of physicians in training exposed to oral presentations. The concentration of sMHPG was measured using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
