Progress in Psychobiology and Physiological Psychology: Volume 14 Progress in Psychobiology and Physiological Psychology: Volume 14 is a collection of studies that discuss certain topics in behavioral neuroscience from different experts in the field. The book is divided into four chapters. Chapter 1 discusses feeding as a voluntary action, its controls, and related feeding phenomena. Chapter 2 covers different hypotheses related to drinking. Chapter 3 focuses on the aggression behavior - its anatomical basis, its modulation, and related neuropharmacological studies, and Chapter 4 investigates the neural circuitry of brain stimulation reward and the constraints on the different study approaches. 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.
