The sixth edition provides an updated, integrated presentation of the study of hormone-behavior-brain interactions. Emphasizing a comparative approach, the text explores the endocrine mechanisms that have evolved in both human and nonhuman animals to solve common challenges in survival and reproduction. The text describes interactions among hormones, brain, and behavior from a historical perspective, emphasizing connections among key theories and tracing the emergence of important hypotheses. The book is organized around the conceptual theme that hormones affect behavior by influencing one or more of three “components” of behaving animals—input mechanisms, the central processing mechanisms of the nervous system, and output mechanisms.
