Hormones, Brain Function, and Behavior brings together the proceedings of a conference on neuroendocrinology held in May 1956 in New York. The papers explore selected aspects of hormone actions in relation to brain function and behavior and cover topics ranging from the effects of steroid hormones on the nervous system to the behavioral consequences of sex hormones and thyroid hormones. Serotonin, epinephrine, and their metabolites are also discussed in relation to experimental psychiatry.
This monograph is comprised of 12 chapters and begins with an assessment of steroid hormones in relation to neuropsychiatric disorders, as well as the influence of adrenocortical steroids on brain function and metabolism. Subsequent chapters focus on the genetic and psychological determinants of sexual behavior patterns; the role of serotonin in mental disorders; the effect of thyroid hormones on appetite for alcohol and alcoholic beverages in rats; and the link between thyroid hormones and mental health. The biochemistry of serotonin and its physiological implications are also examined.
This text will appeal to biologists, neuropharmacologists, neuropsychiatrists, and psychologists.
