Hormones and Behaviour: A Psychological Approach

Hormones and Behaviour: A Psychological Approach Lowest new price: $9.94
Lowest used price: $8.04
List price: $65.99
Author: Dr Nick Neave
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Recent advances in non-invasive sampling techniques have led to an increase in the study of hormones and behaviour. Behaviour is complex but can be explained to a large degree by interactions between various psychological and physiological components, such as the interplay between hormonal and psychological systems. This new textbook from Nick Neave offers a detailed introduction to the fascinating science of behavioural endocrinology from a psychological perspective, examining the relationships between hormones and behaviour in both humans and animals. Neave explains the endocrine system and the ways in which hormones can influence brain structure and function, and presents a series of examples to demonstrate how hormones can influence specific behaviours, including sexual determination and differentiation, neurological differentiation, parental behaviours, aggressive behaviours and cognition. This introductory textbook will appeal to second and third year social science undergraduate students in psychology and biomedicine.

As scientific knowledge about the biological influences on mental disorders increases, diagnosis and treatment of these disorders are changing to reflect this new understanding. Psychobiological Foundations of Psychiatric Care presents the essential information for psychiatric nurses to understand the biological bases underlying human behaviour and mental illness. The book is divided into two parts. Part I details neuroanatomy and neurophysiology with many full-colour drawings, photographs, and brain scan images. Part II discusses the psychobiology of the major mental disorders together with the behavioural manifestations and clinical implications of each disorder. This reference provides comprehensive information nurses need to know to care for patients with psychiatric disorders in the "Decade of the Brain".

Written by a distinguished team of four leaders in neuropathology, neurobiology and neuropsychiatry research and practice to ensure definitive, authoritative, and current information. Describes macroanatomy and microanatomy of the brain to provide a basis for further discussion of the biological aspects of specific mental disorders. Discusses brain imaging techniques, supported by numerous brain scan images, to provide a fundamental understanding of the techniques used to study psychobiological disorders. Addresses the clinical manifestations of the biological aspects of the major mental disorders to promote understanding of the biological bases for the disorders and develop appropriate biological interventions. Offers a consistent presentation of theoretical and clinical information on the major mental disorders to facilitate understanding of the material. Includes the ANA Psychopharmacology Guidelines for Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurses to provide a resource for understanding the relationship between psychobiology and psychopharmacological interventions. Provides a glossary of neuroanatomy and neurobiologic terms to define and explain the fundamental concepts related to psychobiology. Features over 100 full-color brain scans, photographs, and drawings to graphically illustrate brain anatomy and function. Presents a visually-stimulating full-color design throughout that makes the text more inviting and information more accessible.

Mood Disorders: Toward a New Psychobiology (Critical Issues in Psychiatry)

Mood Disorders: Toward a New Psychobiology (Critical Issues in Psychiatry) Lowest new price: $66.74
Lowest used price: $9.07
List price: $99.00
Author: Peter C. Whybrow

In this book we present a conceptually integrated approach to disorders of mood. These disorders are defined narrowly as the clinical syndromes of mania and melancholia. The latter is our particular focus, for the simple reason that it is more common and thus more is known about it. Our approach owes much to Adolf Meyer, who first used the term psychobiology. It was he who emphasized in a practical way the importance of the clinician consider­ ing the joint contribution of psychosocial and biological factors in the genesis of mental disorders. However, until the 1960s, our relative ignorance of basic mechanisms that link brain and behavior prevented the development of a genuine psychobiological perspective. Thus Meyer's work was concerned largely with teaching the importance of the personal biography and a consideration of social history in the development of mental disorder. We feel that sufficiently rigorous data have now emerged in psychia­ try to permit tentative but real psychobiological integration. Affective illness is proba­ bly the most promising area for an attempt at such a synthesis. It is our belief that the theory and clinical practice of psychiatry now can be woven into a coherent theme, integrating insights and evidence generated by the psychodynamic, biological, and behavioral methods; hence in part we review the emerging psychobiology of mood disorders with the hope that it can serve as a generic paradigm for other psychiatric syndromes.


Human Ethology (Foundations of Human Behavior)

Human Ethology (Foundations of Human Behavior) Lowest new price: $124.95
Lowest used price: $52.42
List price: $85.95
Author: Irenaus Eibl-Eibesfeldt

With the discovery of conditioned reflexes by I. P. Pavlov, the possibilities for experimenting, following the example set by the classical, exact sciences, were made available to the behavioral sciences. Many psychologists hoped that the component parts of behavior had also been found from which the entire, multifaceted cosmos of behavior could then be constructed. An experimentally oriented psychology subsequently developed including the influential school of behaviorism.

This first text on human ethology presents itself as a unified work, even though not every area could be treated with equal depth. For example, a branch of ethology has developed in the past decade which places particular emphasis on ecology and population genetics. This field, known as sociobiology, has enriched discussion beyond the boundaries of behavioral biology through its stimulating, and often provocative, theses.

After vigorous debates between behaviorists, anthropologists, and sociologists, we have entered a period of exchange of thoughts and a mutual approach, which in many instances has led to cooperative projects of researchers from different disciplines. This work offers a biological point of view for discussion and includes data from the author's cross-cultural work and research from the staff of his institute. It confirms, above all else, the astonishing unity of mankind and paints a basically positive picture of how we are moved by the same passions, jealousies, friendliness, and active curiosity.

The need to understand ourselves has never been as great as it is today. An ideologically torn humanity struggles for its survival. Our species, does not know how it should compensate its workers, and it experiments with various economic systems, constitutions, and forms of government. It struggles for freedom and stumbles into newer conflicts. Population growth is apparently completely out of hand, and at the same time many resources are being depleted. We must consider our existence rationally in order to understand it, but certainly not with cold, calculating reason but with the warm feeling of a heart concerned for the welfare of later generations.

002: Advances in Psychological Science, Volume 2: Biological and Cognitive Aspects Lowest new price: $59.13
Lowest used price: $2.11
List price: $135.00
Brand: Brand: Psychology Press

The chapters in this volume are the edited versions of invited addresses to the XXVI International Congress of Psychology held in Montréal in August 1996. As one major goal of the Congress was to promote communication among specializations in scientific psychology, the speakers were asked to survey their research area and present their own work in a way that would be accessible to their colleagues in other areas. Another purpose of the meeting was to bring researchers together from different parts of the world, reflecting their different approaches to the scientific study of mind, brain, and behavior. Consequently, the eminent researchers who have written the twenty-six chapters included in the present volume were drawn from universities and research institutes in North America, Europe, Japan, Russia, Israel, and New Zealand. The chapters cover a range of topics in human and animal experimental psychology. The first section deals with psychobiological processes - the interplay of body and mind in determining intelligence, stress, and pain. The next five chapters address current issues in neuropsychology and neuroscience, including the neural correlates of attention and vision. A third section looks at learning processes in humans and animals, and a fourth deals with a range of topics in perception and cognition. The final five chapters take a developmental perspective, presenting theoretical and empirical analyses of the acquisition of perceptual and cognitive abilities. Overall, the collection illustrates the growing trend to break down traditional barriers between areas of experimental psychology; there are many instances of profitable interactions between researchers studying aspects of behavior and those studying the biological bases of these behaviors. The twenty-six chapters give an excellent overview of current research in scientific psychology.
