Progress in Psychobiology and Physiological Psychology: Volume 12 is a collection of studies that discuss certain topics in behavioral neuroscience from different experts in the field. The book is divided into five chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the relationship between the consumption of carbohydrates and satiety, as well as the effects of hexose. Chapter 2 explains the different perspectives and theories on how running accelerates growth. Chapter 3 tackles the anatomical and and functional integration of the limbic and motor systems. Chapter 4 covers the activity of the monoaminergic unit of the brain, and Chapter 5 talks about the psychological and neural aspects of the attribute model of emory. The monograph will interest neurologists and psychologists who would like to study the specific areas mentioned or make their own studies in the related areas.
