About the Author | Table of Contents | Audiences

Exercise Endocrinology is the only comprehensive textbook dealing with the endocrine physiology of exercise. The book serves both as a valuable introduction to endocrinology and as an integrative overview of exercise endocrinology. The text will help you understand the basics of endocrinology while giving you the most current information on endocrine physiology research.

What makes Exercise Endocrinology unique is its organization by functional responses of hormones rather than by their organs and tissue origins. In addition, the book integrates autonomic physiology with endocrinology to present the most thorough review available of the autonomic nervous system's involvement in exercise.

Written by a highly acclaimed exercise scientist and endocrinology researcher, Exercise Endocrinology is well organized and includes references, illustrations, and tables that will help you do the following:

The text devotes substantial attention to the chemical mediation of hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and obesity. It also combines the study of growth and energy regulation to clarify how chemical mediators cause partitioning of energy down these separate pathways.

The practical value of Exercise Endocrinology will appeal to students and exercise scientists, and the book will also be a valuable reference for health professionals who use exercise in disease prevention and rehabilitation.
