Book Description

Our world and bodies are becoming increasingly polluted with chemicals capable of interfering with our hormones and thus; possibly; our present and future mental and neural health. As authors Scott Belcher and Heather Patisaul outline; there is a large lack of data and evidence in this causal relationship; which begs a need for further study to accelerate progress in the endocrinology and neuroendocrinology fields.

Endocrine Disruptors; Brain; and Behavior (PDF) focuses on if and how these chemicals; known as endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs); affect the function and development of the brain and might be contributing to neural disorders rapidly rising in prevalence. The ebook provides an overall synthesis of the EDC field; including its historical roots; key findings; major hypotheses; and research gaps. The authors explain why even the concept of endocrine disruption is controversial in some circles; how differing definitions of endocrine disruption and what constitutes an “adverse” outcome on the brain shape public policy; and where the current capacity by different stakeholders (academia; industry; regulatory agencies) to evaluate chemicals for safety in a regulatory context begins and ends. The ebook concludes with suggestions for future research needs and a summary of emerging technology which might prove capable of more effectively evaluating existing and emerging chemicals for endocrine-disrupting properties. As such; it provides the context for interdisciplinary and innovative input from a broad spectrum of fields; including those well-schooled in evolutionary biology; neuroscience; brain; behavior; sex differences; and neuroendocrinology.
