"...the present text is certainly of interest to those biology and medical students who are taught basic courses in neuroendocrinoogy and need a reference book to help them organising their newly acquired knowledge." - Psychoneuroendocrinology
"This book is a pleasure to read. It would be an excellent text for professors, medical students and new graduate students. The authors do a good job of integrating classical endocrinology with the more current molecular approaches...it does an excellent job of conveying and integrating current concepts, all of which are presented clearly and concisely. The presentation of information is pleasing...this will be a text that is much appreciated by students and their professors alike."---- Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism
" An important text, designed for research fellows, resident pediatricians and endocrinologists. Clearly written and well illustrated."-----Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology & Metabolism
"The editors invited a highly talented and experienced group of authors to prepare the 31 chapters. On the whole, they are well written and supported by meaningful figures. The book does, indeed, nicely bridge the gap between classical endocrine physiology and neuroscience, and comprehensively summarizes these subdisciplines which should not be exclusively relegated to either realm. For example, although standard endocrine volumes typically cover the neural regulation of pituitary function and associated disease states, this book includes thorough chapters on biological rhythm regulation, the influence of hormones on behavior, learning and memory, and neuroendocrine immunology. These are subjects usually found in neuroscience textbooks only. ...this book is a valuable contribution that will be useful to a broad range of individuals, particularly those with some previous exposure to the subject."-Quarterly Review of Biology
"...timely and fills a major void in the discipline, in which there was no recent comprehensive texts covering the topic. This textbook has been designed to provide systematic coverage of analytical, anatomical, functional, clinical and pathologic topics in neuroendocrinology by approximately 50 experts in the field, who are also recognized as skilled teachers....Part V should be interesting for every clinicians, as it deals with neuroendocrine pathology and diseases....The text is intended for fellows, residents, clinicians and basic scientists in the fields of endocrinology, neurology and physiology. Each chapter is very well-written and textual coverage is supported by clear, comprehensive black and white tables and figures. Taken together, Neuroendocrinology in Physiology and Medicine is an outstanding textbook that should serve as a reference support for every interested reader." -Acta Neurologica Belgica
"An important text, designed for research fellows, resident pediatricians and endocrinologists. Clearly written and well illustrated." - Journal of Endocrine Genetics
