Behavioral Neuroendocrinology 1st Edition

Inspired by Carlos Beyer’s 50 years of pioneering research and influence on his students and colleagues, Behavioral Neuroendocrinology builds upon Beyer’s fundamental discoveries and concepts as well as their widespread implications. It presents original research and reviews on mechanisms ― genomic and non-genomic ― of steroid and protein hormone action; the role of steroid metabolism, especially aromatization, protein phosphorylation, and neurotransmitter action in mediating reproductive behavior and sexual differentiation; and brain and spinal cord mechanisms in sexual behavior and analgesia.

This book presents a rich diversity of topics ― lactation, maternal behavior, pheromone action, chronobiology, allodynia, angiogenesis, prostate physiology, sexual motivation, and specific brain systems, including vomeronasal system, cerebellum, preoptic area, hypothalamus, and spinal cord. This book brings together, in one source, an international “family” of researchers whose work has evolved in diverse but related ways from a seminal set of discoveries and concepts in behavioral neuroendocrinology.

Metabolic Syndrome and Neurological Disorders 1st Edition

Metabolic Syndrome and Neurological Disorders brings together information on the cluster of common pathologies which cause metabolic syndrome – abdominal obesity linked to an excess of visceral fat, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension – to provide a comprehensive and cutting edge exploration of the link between metabolic syndrome and neurological disorders.

Metabolic syndrome is recognized to play a role in neurological disorders such as stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and depression. For the first time in book form, Metabolic Syndrome and Neurological Disorders covers the molecular mechanisms thought to underlie this mirror relationship, as well as how lifestyle and other factors such as oxidative stress and inflammation may play a role in the disease. Grounded in a series of epidemiological studies of metabolic-cognitive syndrome, this book will be a valuable reference for researchers, dietitians, nutritionists, and physicians.

The Prefrontal Cortex as an Executive, Emotional, and Social Brain 1st ed. 2017 Edition

This book is devoted to the executive, emotional, social, and integrative functions of the prefrontal cortex (PFC). The PFC has usually been studied only with its executive function or with its emotional function, but recent studies indicate that the PFC plays important roles in integrating executive and emotional functions as well as in social behavior. The first part of the book reviews the functional organization of the PFC in human and nonhuman primates. The subsequent part focuses on the integrator of executive and emotional functions. The third part presents the integrator of executive and social functions, and the final part discusses the default mode of brain activities. There are chapters on animal studies, because functional significance of the PFC cannot be described without referring to those studies. Thus many methodologies are presented such as human neuropsychological, neuroimaging, and stimulation studies, and animal neuropsychological, neurophysiological, neurochemical, neuroanatomical, and neuroimaging studies. Bringing those together, this volume provides a timely and concise picture of the function of the PFC. The result is a valuable resource for students and scientists, providing up-to-date information on this emerging research topic.
