About this book

The field of neuroendocrinology has extended from the initial interest in the hypothalamic control of pituitary secretion to embrace multiple reciprocal interactions between the central nervous system and endocrine systems in the coordination of homeostasis and various physiological responses from adaptation to disease. Most recently, epigenetic mechanisms were recognized for their role in the development of the neuroendocrine axes as well as in the mediation of gene-environment interactions in stress-related psychiatry disorders.

Reviews

“The intended audience … includes researchers studying epigenetics in regard to stress-related psychiatric disorders such post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and eating disorders. Clinicians who would like to stay informed about this interesting research would also benefit from reading this book. … This is an interesting and very informative book on epigenetics and neuroendocrinology in relation to psychiatric disorders and the brain and behavior. … it is a welcome addition to the psychiatric literature.” (Michael Joel Schrift, Doody's Book Reviews, August, 2016)
