This title is out of print.
Appropriate for one-semester junior-graduate level courses in Endocrinology, Endocrine Physiology, as well as courses in medicine, dentistry, pharmacology, nutrition, nursing and other related medical or animal sciences where endocrinology is the focus.
Hadley provides comprehensive coverage of endocrinology, centralizing on the critical roles of glands, hormones, receptors, and molecular signaling pathways in the control of physiological processes. This up-to-date Sixth Edition reviews the basic concepts, research methodologies, and the “state-of-the-art” scientific understanding of each of the major endocrine systems, in examples designed specifically for premedical and related professional courses.
Each chapter is consistently organized to provide information on the following aspects of endocrine physiology—(1) Introduction and Historical Perspective; (2) Origin; (3) Biosynthesis; (4) Chemistry; (5) Secretion; (6) Circulation and Metabolism; (7) Physiological Roles; (8) Mechanisms of Action; (9) Pathophysiology; (10) Comparative Endocrinology.
This consistent presentation helps students understand and compare endocrine physiology.
o Provides students with the latest research, clinical applications, and methodologies in this fast-moving field.
o Provides students with a balanced and thorough presentation of topics.
o Gives students a comprehensive working vocabulary of the endocrine system, its components and processes.
o The historical and classical methodologies provide context for the modern techniques.
o Provides students with a flavor for comparative endocrinology and in-depth exposure to the evolution of hormones.
NEW— Dr. Jon E. Levine assumes co-authorship in this revised version of Hadley’s classic textbook. The new edition harnesses Levine’s extensive research in neuroendocrinology and reproductive biology, along with Hadley’s expertise in the field of melanotropins and vertebrate pigmentation.
The text's accuracy and timelessness are ensured through the authors' decades of active research.
