This text discusses the important role of steroids and neuropeptides in the regulation of behavior. The guiding principle behind the discussion is the concept of using good model animal systems to help us to understand how hormones influence the brain. The book emphasizes that steroids, and peptides or neuropeptides affect behavior by acting directly on the brain, and that common neural circuits underlie a variety of different central motive states. The first chapter focuses on developmental periods and sexually dimorphic behaviors; the second discusses sodium and water appetite, and ingestion; the third deals with appetite, food selection and ingestion. The fourth chapter examines how hormones influence parental behavior; the fifth is on fear and stress. The last chapter deals with biological clocks and endogenous rhythms. Senior undergraduate and graduate students in neuroscience, endocrinology, and physiology will find this text a useful guide to the role of hormones in behavior.

MEDIA REVIEWS
' ... a very well-written overview of selected topics and important concepts in behavioral neuroendocrinology ... useful for teaching undergraduate and graduate students, but also for those interested in a brief overview of this fascinating area of research.' Charles E. Roselli, Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism
"...[T]he author has produced a well-written volume...In a 16-page introduction he provides a basic summary of the vertebrate hormones, with citations of the pertinent literature, and he includes a history of the field of behavioral endocrinology. In fact, the 78-page bibliography is the largest single unit of the entire book. Publication of an inexpensive paperback version makes the book even more attractive as a textbook for an undergraduate course." General and Comparative Endocrinology
"In this ideal work for an upper-division undergraduate seminar in behavioral neuroscience, Schulkin emphasizes the experimental approach to the study of hormonal regulation of behavior.... Outstanding reference list. An ideal book for upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and professionals in these fields." Choice
