Synopsis

Psychoneuroendocrinology is the study of the interaction between hormones, the brain and 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 links between hormones and behaviour, and draws important conclusions for how their study will aid in the understanding of the bidirectional link between sport and behaviour, central to the psychology of sport and exercise. It presents the key hormones that underpin behaviour in a sporting context, including the description of their physiologic mechanisms and behavioural effects. The book reports benchmark standards for the assessment and analysis of hormonal influences of behaviour in sport, and examines practical issues and contexts such as emotional state, overtraining and stress. Psychoneuroendocrinology in Sport and Exercise is a breakthrough text that will be of interest to all advanced students and researchers working in the psychology and physiology of sport and exercise.

Felix Ehrlenspiel is a lecturer at TU Munchen and received his PhD in Psychology in 2006 from the University of Potsdam. His research is concerned with behavioural, psychological and neuroendocrine responses to competitions, and he currently teaches athletes and students how to deal with these responses. Katharina Strahler M.Sc., works as a clinical psychologist for children and adolescents. She is currently completing her PhD at the Technische Universitat Munchen, Germany. Her research interests are psychoneuroendocrinology of stress in sport, competitive anxiety and doping prevention interventions.
