Feedback Control of Gonadal and Hypophyseal Hormones: Evolution of the Concept

  • Dorothy Price
Part of the Perspectives in Neuroendocrine Research book series (PNR, volume 1)


An invitation to join in the writing of such a book as the editors of this volume visualize offers a challenging opportunity. The contributors can escape from the usual restrictions of scientific jargon, stylized form, and a text liberally larded with references. The mandate as I see it, is to be as candid, honest, and objective as a subjective mind and memory will allow.
