The field of neuroendocrinology focuses on how the brain controls pituitary and adrenal function; the actions of hormones on the brain; and the wide variety of neuroendocrinological diseases that affect children, adults, and the elderly. Neuroendocrinology provides the most up-to-date review available on the subject, covering advances from molecular biology to clinical endocrinology. The book will be useful to endocrinologists, specialists in internal medicine, psychologists, and psychiatrists. It also can serve as an excellent text for medical and graduate students.
