Download Advances in Vasopressin and Oxytocin — From Genes to by Rainer Landgraf, Inga D. Neumann PDF

By Rainer Landgraf, Inga D. Neumann

Vasopressin and oxytocin are the major hormones of the hypothalamo-neurohypophysial procedure, and are famous to be seriously serious about antidiuresis, exertions, and milk ejection. This ebook highlights the most recent examine on vasopressin and oxytocin, masking a number of organic points. The ability of either hormones to control quite a few features of social behaviours together with pair-bonding, aggression, maternal love, and sexual behaviour, is a prime concentration, as are their interactions with quite a few different neuromodulators and transmitters. furthermore, the booklet illustrates the hot improvement of vasopressin and oxytocin agonists/antagonists as capability medicinal drugs to regard not just disturbances of physique fluid homeostasis, but in addition psychological issues, together with social phobia, autism, anxiousness, and melancholy. The promising mix of easy and medical learn, comprising body structure, neuroendocrinology, behavioral biology, pharmacology, imaging and molecular genetics makes this ebook a vital addition to either specialists and scientists new to the sector alike.
