    "A book about the effects of hormones on the behavior of female rodents might be dull, but it would not be controversial. Substitute humans for rodents, and prepare for a storm. In Hormonal, Haselton takes on this challenge and explores the complex roles that hormones play in women's lives as we choose our mates, cultivate our relationships 4/4(17).   Hormones in animals Hormones are chemical secreted by endocrine gland in one part of the body and are carried by blood to another part where they stimulate or inhibit specific physiological process. The cells of endocrine glands release hormones into the blood blood carries them from the site of production to site of action.

    Hormones and Behavior publishes original research articles, reviews and special issues concerning hormone-brain-behavior relationships, broadly defined. The journal's scope ranges from laboratory and field studies concerning neuroendocrine as well as endocrine mechanisms controlling the development or. In writing the book, invertebrates and vertebrates were placed side by side to show the extent to which both are now known to have hormones with similar actions.
