This publication focuses on the neuroendocrine functions of excitatory neurotransmitters in the brain known as the excitatory amino acid transmitters (EAAs). EEAs, such as glutamate and aspartate, regulate the release of pituitary hormones which in-turn effect most of the physiological systems in the body. This book gives detailed coverage of the role of EAAs in reproduction, growth, the stress axis, seasonal breeding, puberty, learning, and memory.
