Reproduction in context : social and environmental influences on reproductive physiology and behavior by Jill E Schneider( )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Historically, reproductive science has focused on reproductive behaviors divorced from the contexts in which they occur. Taking a more integrated view, this book explores the neuroendocrine bases of reproduction in relation to their environmental and social contexts."--Jacket
Principles of hormone/behavior relations by Donald W Pfaff( )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduces underlying principles of the endocrine regulation of behavior in animals and humans. Every chapter begins by stating a principle, followed by specific examples of hormone actions derived from scientific experiments and clinical observations, and concludes with a few challenging unanswered questions. The reference source Hormones, Brain & Behavior identified this field as rapidly expanding within neurobiology and endocrinology
The Roles of Ovarian Steroids, Mesolimbic Dopamine, and Gonadotropin-inhibiting Hormone in Regulating Sexual and Ingestive Motivation by Candice M Klingerman( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of estradiol and other putative anorectic peptides on sex and ingestive behavior have been well-studied, and yet their role in diverting attention from food to sex has not been examined directly, possibly because these functions are masked under conditions of energy abundance typical of the laboratory. This dissertation is unique in that it examines the roles of neuropeptide systems in the context in which they evolved; females are housed in a semi-natural environment and have access to both food and males. Female Syrian hamsters were subjected to different levels of energy restriction and the effects of ovarian steroids, meso-limbic dopamine, gonadotropin-inhibiting hormone, leptin, and insulin were tested in relation to sexual and ingestive motivation (vaginal scent marking, male preference, food hoarding) and performance (lordosis, food intake). First, sexual and ingestive motivation were affected by low energy prior to changes in performance or copulatory reward (cellular activation of nucleus accumbens and formation of a conditioned place preference to mating). Furthermore, changes in motivation occurred independent of changes to putative anorectic (estradiol, leptin) or orexigenic (progesterone, insulin) chemical messengers. However, increases in food hoarding and decreases in vaginal marking were associated with changes in gonadotropin-inhibiting hormone, a neuropeptide shown to suppress gonadotropin-releasing hormone and luteinizing hormone in hamsters, sex behavior in birds and rats, and increase food intake in rats, mice, sheep, and monkeys. Unlike other animal models, Syrian hamsters do not increase food intake after a period of reduced energy availability. Instead, they increase their food hoarding. Thus, gonadotropin-inhibiting hormone represents an ideal candidate neuropeptide system for setting behavioral priorities in environments where energy availability varies or is unpredictable
