Among its nearly 100 contributors are many of the investigators directly responsible for the fields spectacular progress in recent years. Topics throughout the Second Edition have been added, condensed, expanded, or completely revamped to reflect new findings on reproductive physiology, endocrinology, and reproductive behavior.The Second Edition provides extensive coverage of new research techniques- recent studies of interactions between hormones and genes- new findings on the structure of receptors- and newly identified endocrine and paracrine substances such as endothelins, interleukins, activins, inhibins, and prorenin. Included are accounts of the latest attempts to elucidate the neural mechanism underlying pulsatile secretion and identify the elusive pulse generator in the central nervous system.
