Principles of Hormone/Behavior Relations by Donald W. Pfaff

Book Description

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. It offers uniform presentation of material across all chapter, with each chapter addressing a key principle, illustrated by basic experimental and clinical examples. It includes user-friendly features such as boxed figures with extended captions and references, numerous clinical notes, and a comprehensive list of abbreviations. The illustrations highlight both the clinical and basic science information.

Altruistic Brain by Donald W. Pfaff Altruistic Brain, Hardback (December 2014)

The Altruistic Brain uses language accessible to non-scientists so as to present an elegant theory of how human beings are "wired" to produce altruistic behavior in the first instance.

From the Couch to the Lab by Donald W. Pfaff From the Couch to the Lab, Hardback (May 2012)

Can the psychodynamics of the mind be correlated with neurodynamic processes in the brain? The book revisits a question that scientists and psychoanalysts have been asking for more than a century. It brings together experts from Psychology, Psychoanalysis, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Psychiatry and Neurology to consider this question.

Handbook of Neuroendocrinology by Donald W. Pfaff Handbook of Neuroendocrinology, Hardback (October 2011)

Neuroendocrinology, the discipline concerned with how the nervous system controls hormonal secretion and how hormones control the brain, is pivotal to physiology and medicine. This title covers the basic principles, neural regulation, hormone/brain function and behavior, and neuroendocrine pathology.
