The Role of the Endocrine Glands in Mammalian Brain Development

  • N. B. Myant
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 13)

Abstract

The influence of the thyroid on the development of the brain and, indeed, on that of the whole animal, is far greater than that of any other hormone. Hence, this chapter will be concerned mainly with the influence of the thyroid on brain development. The effects of other hormones on brain development will only be considered briefly.
