Describing findings in both clinical and laboratory research, this volume investigates the behavioural and neural effects of endocrine activity in animals and humans. Each chapter discusses the relationship between normal endocrine control of behaviour and the pathological consequences that result from endocrine abnormalities. The relevance to mental health and basic regulatory homeostatic events are balanced with a basic understanding of how hormones effect behaviour and the brain. Chapter topics include the effects of endocrine activity on homeostasis, sexual behaviour, aggression, circadian rhythms and affective disorders, in addition to discussing steroid abuse, adrenal steroid effects on the brain and a detailed investigation on the effects of cholecystokinin and oxytocin.
