Advances in Physiological Sciences, Volume 15: Reproduction and Development covers the proceedings of the symposia of the 28th International Congress of Physiology. The book discusses several studies related to reproduction and development. The opening chapter discusses findings in reproductive neuroendocrinology, while the second chapter covers stimulatory and inhibitory analogs of LH-RH. The succeeding chapters are organized into four parts based on the topic of the papers. Part 1 deals with the role of the hypothalamus in the regulation of LH and FSH secretion, and Part 2 tackles gonadotropic and steroid hormone receptors. Part 3 explains reproduction and development, and Part 4 deals with contraception. Researchers and professionals concerned with reproduction and development will find this book a great reference materials.
