Hormones and the brain : papers presented at a workshop by David de Wied( Book )
9 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 202 libraries worldwide
During the last decade it has become evident that the brain is an important target for hormones. Although it has been discovered only recently that the brain contains numerous peptide hormones, the role of pituitary and hypo thalamic hormones in brain activity has been the subject of basic studies for quite some time. Peptide hormones are involved in mental performance. pain perception, food and water metabolism. sleep. sexual behaviour and nursing behaviour, and disturbances in the hormonal climate of the brain may be associated with psychopathology. cognitive disturbances and. possibly. addic tion. The clinical influence of neurohypophysial hormones and their frag ments is studied today on learning and memory. on inadequate behaviour and addiction, in Parkinson's disease. Lesch-Nyhan syndrome. depression and schizophrenia. Fragments of adrenocorticotrophin have been shown to affect motivation, concentration and attention. and neuropeptides derived from ~-lipotrophin are probably involved in psychopathology. Thyrotrophin releasing hormone has been implicated in depression. and lutein-releasing hormone in sexual disturbances. In spite of the impressive experimental data; clinical results to date have been controversial and. to some extent. anecdotal. In some cases they have been exciting. and in others disappointing. It was against this background that the International Health Foundation decided to organize and sponsor their workshop on 'The brain as an endo crine target organ in health and disease' at which the papers appearing in this book were presented
Breast cancer : psycho-social aspects of early detection and treatment : a workshop meeting report by Patrick C Brand( Book )
4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 189 libraries worldwide
Undoubtedly, the medical aspects of mammary carcinoma-its cause, early detection and treatment-have received considerable attention. Rightly so. The disease is widespread and may be regarded as one of the most important health hazards for women. The psycho-social aspects of the problem, however, have so far received far less attention. Yet these aspects are of the utmost importance, as became evident once more during our workshop conference, of which this book presents the proceedings. It dealt with two aspects of psycho-social problems resulting from breast cancer: 1. The psycho-social difficulties that women may face when the diagnosis is given and when mastectomy has been performed. 2. The psycho-social factors that play a role in participation or non participation in screening programmes for mammary carcinoma. These two areas, and some related topics, have been the subject of a 2-day meeting in Brussels, organized by the International Health Foundation. A number of papers was presented and discussed. The meeting ended with a general discussion. The editors are grateful to the participants for their willingness to share their knowledge and ideas with them. It is hoped that this book will be of some help to all those who are involved in the treatment and the care of women who are to undergo or who have had a mastectomy and to those who plan the strategy of screening programmes for carcinoma of the breast
