From the Publisher"An extremely well-written textbook covering an important area of psychology in which suitable books are currently lacking. The author draws on a large body of research evidence in order to demonstrate the main points, and the style of writing is particularly accessible to students."
—Dr Claire Gibson, School of Psychology, University of Leicester
"Overall, Neave's book offers a balanced and comprehensive overview of behavioral endocrinology....in the hands of a good instructor,Neave's book provides a good overview of the endocrinology of sex, aggression, competition, parenting, and cognition—all topics of interest to psychologists."
—Matthew L. Newman, PsycCritiques
"Neave (psychology, Northumbria Univ., UK) has written an excellent overview of the emerging field of behavioral endocrinology...In 11 well-written chapters, the book presents an introduction to the nervous and endocrine systems and then examines evidence regarding how harmones affect behavior and vice versa. Readers will learn a great deal about the complexities of harmonal regulation of reproductive and sexual activities, attachment, bonding, parental behaviors, aggression, cognitive processing, and sex difference. Current research activities are nicely presented in their historical context. The book is scholarly (it includes 60 pages of references) but eminently readable by anyone interested in psychobiology, behavioral neuroscience, and various medical fields. Recommended..."
