Psychoneuroendocrinology is the study of hormone fluctuations and their relationship to human behaviour. This is the first book to examine psychoneuroendocrinology in the context of sport and exercise, offering a comprehensive review of current research and assessment techniques and highlighting directions for future research. The book explores the bidirectional links between hormones and behaviour, and between sport and behaviour, and draws important conclusions regarding their interaction. It presents a series of studies of the key hormones that underpin behaviour in a sporting context, including description of their physiologic mechanisms and behavioural effects. The book establishes benchmark standards for the assessment and analysis of hormonal influences of behaviour in sport, and examines practical issues and contexts such as emotional state (anxiety, for example), overtraining and stress. Psychoneuroendocrinology in Sport and Exerciseis a breakthrough text that will be of interest to all advanced students and researchers working in the psychology and physiology of sport and exercise.
