Neuroendocrine responses to social interaction
Our objective is to trace the way in which the psychosocial stimulus results in disease. The first five chapters recount the work of anthropologists, ethologists, and psychologists who describe the motivation of organisms in terms of attachment and territoriality, of dominance and subordination, and of maternal care. Chapter 6 discusses the work of neurophysiologists who have made remarkable discoveries concerning the cognitive and affective roles of the hemispheres and the limbic system.
