About this book

Advances in 21st Century neuroscience and endocrinology will permit complex problems of medicine and public health to be elucidated. Among these problems are failures of normal social and sexual behaviors. As it turns out, these behaviors are influenced by hormone actions in the human brain using mechanisms that we have inherited from lower animals. This book concentrates on two major topics: First, the molecular and neural biology of hormone actions relevant to normal social behaviors; and Second, the clinical treatment of human patients in whom these behaviors have gone wrong.
