About this book


In Neuroendocrinology in Physiology and Medicine, Michael Conn and Marc Freeman have brought together a panel of leading experts to create a comprehensive, integrated treatment of the processes by which the brain acts as an endocrine organ not only to control hormonal functions, but also to maintain homeostasis and regulate behavior. The authors-recognized both as leaders in their fields and as skilled teachers-present the latest findings from basic and clinical science, and provide systematic coverage of the analytical, anatomical, functional, clinical, and pathological aspects of neuroendocrinology. Topics range from the interactions between the nervous and endocrine systems to the regulation of reproduction, development, metabolism, fluid balance, and biological rhythms. Also covered are the role of neuroendocrine pathology in disease, and the neuroendocrine correlates of stress, behavior, and biological processes.
Neuroendocrinology in Physiology and Medicine offers an unprecedented marriage of clinical and basic knowledge that has been missing from classical neuroscience, endocrinology, and physiology texts. Comprehensive and cutting-edge, this enlightening survey instantly becomes the new gold-standard resource for today's graduate and medical students, as well as an indispensable reference for researchers in this rapidly growing field.
