Hormonal steroids; biochemistry, pharmacology, and therapeutics; proceedings of the first International Congress on Hormonal Steroids. Ed. by L. Martini and A. Pecile by Luciano Martini( Book )

Information concerning localization of exogenously administered tritiumlabeled steroid hormones in the brain by dry-mount autoradiography was presented. Estrogens, androgens, and glucocorticoids were found to be concentrated and retained in nuclei of certain neurons. The autoradiographic information on the topographic distribution of hormone-neurons (neurons which concentrate, retain, and respond in a specific manner to hormones) suggested that "feedback" areas for the regulation of endocrine glands are not restricted to the hypothalamus and preoptic region. It appeared that gonadotropin and neurons that regulate sexual behavior were widespread within the phylogenetically ancient periventricular brain, following the origin, the termination, and to some degree, the path of certain nerve-fiber tracts. In the case of estradiol and androgen, likely to be involved are the stria terminalis, the ventral amygdalohypothalamic pathway, a portion of the fornix, the periventricular bundle, and others. Hormone-neurons have been found only in the periventricular brain but not in the neopallium. It was concluded that the "hypophysiotropic area" is probably not restricted to a limited hypothetical segment of the hypothalamus but is identical with the multiple sites of autoradiographically defined hormone-neurons within the phylogenetically older periventricular brain

Clinical neuroendocrinology by Karl Ernst PASCHKIS( Book )

28 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clinical Neuroendocrinology, Volume II discusses neuroendocrine science and its application to the analysis of human physiology and behavior. This book stresses the importance of the interrelationships between central and peripheral signals, neurotransmitters and neuromodulators, and target glands and peripheral tissues to ensure coordination of somatic and behavioral development and function. The """"centralist"""" concepts of the importance of brain hormones are revised in this text, emphasizing that neurohumoral factors isolated from brain tissues, and initially considered to be primarily i

Neuroendocrinology : the normal neuroendocrine system( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neuroendocrinology is a discipline which originated about 50 years ago as a branch of Endocrinology and that is now strictly linked to neuroscience. Volumes 181 and 182 of Progress in Brain Research provide a rapid view of the major points presently discussed at biological and clinical levels. The chapters have been written by top scientists who are directly involved in basic or clinical research and who use the most sophisticated biotechnological techniques. The volumes cover of the role of genetics in many endocrine-related events, like neuroendocrinological diseases and endocrine depenedent cancers (prostate, breast, etc,). Interesting information is also provided on possibile treatments of neurodegenerative brain diseases (e.g., Alzheimer and similar syndromes). The best researchers in the field provide their conclusions in the context of the latest experimental results. Chapters are extensively referenced to provide readers with a comprehensive list of resources on the topics covered. Of great value for researchers and experts, but also for students as a background reference
