Summary This text introduces underlying principles of the endocrine regulation of behavior in animals and humans. Every chapter begins by stating a principle, followed by specific examples of hormone actions derived from scientific experiments and clinical observations, and concludes with a few challenging unanswered questions. The reference source Hormones, Brain & Behavior identified this field as rapidly expanding within neurobiology and endocrinology. Now, this well-illustrated and referenced text will serve students from undergraduate school to medical school as they learn this new discipline. * Uniform presentation of material across all chapter, with each chapter addressing a key principle, illustrated by basic experimental and clinical examples * Includes user-friendly features such as boxed figures with extended captions and references, numerous clinical notes, and a comprehensive list of abbreviations * Illustrations highlight both the clinical and basic science information
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 295-322) and index
