Hormones, Brain and Behavior, Third Edition offers a state-of-the-art overview of hormonally-mediated behaviors, including an extensive discussion of the effects of hormones on insects, fish, amphibians, birds, rodents, and humans. Entries have been carefully designed to provide a valuable source of information for students and researchers in neuroendocrinology and those working in related areas, such as biology, psychology, psychiatry, and neurology.

This third edition has been substantially restructured to include both foundational information and recent developments in the field. Continuing the emphasis on interdisciplinary research and practical applications, the book includes articles aligned in five main subject sections, with new chapters included on genetic and genomic techniques and clinical investigations.

This reference provides unique treatment of all major vertebrate and invertebrate model systems with excellent opportunities for relating behavior to molecular genetics. The topics cover an unusual breadth (from molecules to ecophysiology), ranging from basic science to clinical research, making this reference of interest to a broad range of scientists in a variety of fields.



Key Features
* Contributors from 16 different countries and more than 70 institutions
* Unlike any other hormone reference on the market Hormones, Brain and Behavior addresses hormone effects in all major vertebrate and non-vertebrate models
* A timely, current reference on an emerging field with each chapter providing an in-depth exploration of the topic
* Discusses molecular aspects of hormone function, systems, development, and hormone-related diseases
* Addresses hormone effects in both the developing and adult nervous system
Topics include:
* Mammalian and Non-mammalian Hormone-behavior Systems
* Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Hormone Actions on Behavior
* Development of Hormone-dependent Neuronal Systems
* Hormone/Behavior Relations of Clinical Importance
