Endocrine aspects of disease processes proceedings of the conference held in honor of Hans Selye, Mont Tremblant, Quebec /

Endocrine Aspects of Disease Processes presents a critical review of hypothalamic hormones regulating the secretion of the anterior pituitary. The book discusses calcitonin as a hormone of ultimobranchials; the brain monoamines and thyroid hormones on emotional stress induced by sympathomimetic agen...
