From the reviews:
'This textbook concerns the effects of hormonal deficiencies and imbalances in relation to the HPA and the effects upon the aging brain. ' I recommend this book to obstetricians, gynecologists, neurologists, and neuroscientists who already have an interest in women's health.' (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, March, 2014)
