Description

Progress in Psychobiology and Physiological Psychology: Volume 13 provides continuing information and a cumulative archive in physiological psychology through papers contributed by experts from related fields.
The text covers topics such as the weaning from milk of infants; the effect of tachykinins on the regulation of body fluids; the brain mechanisms of aggression by electrical and chemical stimulation; and the behavioral and cardiovascular components of the defense reaction. Also covered are topics such as the behavioral neurobiology of circadian pacemakers, as well as the mechanisms of brain-stimulation reward. The book is recommended for medical doctors and psychologists who would like to know more about studies in the field of psychobiology and physiological psychology.
