About this course

Behavioral endocrinology refers to genetic, molecular, cellular, psychological, and social influences on behaviour. This course reviews the current state of knowledge at the interfaces of hormones and behaviour in mammals. The course Behavioural Endocrinology consists of 4 themes, namely:

  1. Introduction to behavioural endocrinology;
  2. Reproduction;
  3. Regulation of homeostasis;
  4. Stress, social behaviour and learning.
    The course addresses basic principles of behaviour and endocrinology, but especially outlines the interrelationships of hormones, behaviour and nervous systems. Contemporary knowledge is presented from diverse perspectives taking into account the historical background and findings that laid the foundations for modern studies of behavioral endocrinology.
