Item description for Control of Behaviour (Biology: Brain and Behaviour) by Frederick Toates...
This book takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the control of behaviour, drawing on the work of psychologists, neurophysiologists and ethologists. It describes those factors, both internal and external, that have been shown to control behaviour. Some behaviours are rhythmic, involving cyclic changes in the amount of hormone secreted. Other behaviours, such as aggression, are a response to external factors. Animals and humans may respond to identifiable stimuli in their environment in a particular way, but at other times the response to a stimulus may be difficult to predict. In this book, both rhythms and motivation are explored and the links between them emphasized, leading to explanations of the control of behaviour at both the behavioural and neurophysiological levels.
