Physiology and Pathology of Adaptation Mechanisms: Neural – Neuroendocrine – Humoral is a collection of papers that covers various aspects of the vital physiologic mechanisms involved in adaptive reactions. The title first covers the development of regulatory processes, and then proceeds to tackling the regulatory and adaptive functions of the pituitary-adrenocortical system. Next, the selection deals with the regulation of adaptive hormones, along with topics about adaptation to environmental temperature variation. The text also deals with the neural, neuroendocrine, and hormonal regulatory and adaptation mechanisms. The book will be of great interest to researchers and practitioners of biology and medicine. Other evolutionary scientists will also benefit from the text.
