This text discusses the important role of steroids and neuropeptides in the regulation of behavior. The guiding principle behind the discussion is the concept of using good model animal systems to help us to understand how hormones influence the brain. The book emphasizes that steroids and peptides, or neuropeptides, affect behavior by acting directly on the brain, and that common neural circuits underlie a variety of different central motive states.Chapters focus on developmental periods and sexually dimorphic behaviors; sodium and water appetite, and ingestion; food selection and appetite; parental behavior; and fear and stress. The last chapter deals with biological clocks.
