Inspired by means of Carlos Beyer’s 50 years of pioneering learn and impact on his scholars and co-workers, Behavioral Neuroendocrinology builds upon Beyer’s primary discoveries and ideas in addition to their common implications. It provides unique examine and experiences on mechanisms ― genomic and non-genomic ― of steroid and protein hormone motion; the function of steroid metabolism, specially aromatization, protein phosphorylation, and neurotransmitter motion in mediating reproductive habit and sexual differentiation; and mind and spinal wire mechanisms in sexual habit and analgesia.

This booklet offers a wealthy range of issues ― lactation, maternal habit, pheromone motion, chronobiology, allodynia, angiogenesis, prostate body structure, sexual motivation, and particular mind structures, together with vomeronasal approach, cerebellum, preoptic region, hypothalamus, and spinal wire. This booklet brings jointly, in a single resource, a global "family" of researchers whose paintings has advanced in various yet similar methods from a seminal set of discoveries and ideas in behavioral neuroendocrinology.
