About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1985, Hormones and Human Behaviour provides an account of knowledge concerning the influence of hormones on human behaviour, largely from a physiological point of view. The topics covered include the control of eating, drinking, sexual behaviour, emotional behaviour, learning and memory, as well as the ways in which psychiatric states may affect these activities, and in which hormones may alter mental function. Thus the book will be of interest to those working in the behavioural sciences and psychiatry, as well as to those studying for specialist qualifications in psychological medicine.
