About this book


A fundamental goal of neuroscience is to understand how hormones modulate neural circuits and behavior. Hearing and Hormones reviews the growing literature showing that hormones can regulate auditory physiology and anatomy, and the perception of acoustic signals across a broad range of animal taxa, including humans.
