Hormones and Brain Plasticity (Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience) by Luis Miguel García-Segura
English | 4 Jun. 2009 | ISBN: 019532661X | 505 Pages | PDF | 7 MB
The nervous system has a remarkable capacity for self-reorganization, and in this first systematic analysis of the interaction between hormones and brain plasticity, Luis Miguel Garcia-Segura proposes that hormones modulate metaplasticity in the brain.
He covers a wide variety of hormones, brain regions, and neuroplastic events, and also provides a new theoretical background with which to interpret the interaction of hormones and brain remodeling throughout the entire life of the organism.
