The Chemistry of Love

By Zvi NAOR

The biological foundations of consciousness, feelings and love and the neural basis of mental phenomena have begun to emerge. Sex hormones affect the organization of gender-specific brain centers. Genes and hormones shape the structures of male and female sex centers in the brain. Cognitive variations between the sexes is due to sex differences in the brain.

Neuropeptides have impact on multiple essential functions, from endocrine control and sexual function, to proper embryonic development and growth to cancer diagnostics and therapy, pain management and neuroprotection.  The technologic advances over the last decades are tremendous and this book provides the reader with broad perspectives and breadth of knowledge on current topics related to neuropeptide research

Robert Werman, M.D.

The Author: The late Professor Robert Werman, was a diplomate of the U.S. Board of Neurology and Psychiatry. He trained for three years in neurology at Mt. Sinai Hospital, New York City, with an additional two years as a neurologist and psychiatrist in the U.S. Navy.  He then began postdoctoral work on the properties of single nerve cells and was appointed assistant professor of neurology at Columbia University Medical School.  After a year’s research in Cambridge, England, he was appointed Research Professor of Psychiatry at Indiana University.  He also served as professor of anatomy and physiology at Indiana University.  Dr. Werman subsequently moved to Israel in 1967 as professor of neurophysiology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.  He has more than 200 publications related to the nervous system.  Dr. Werman led the team that discovered the first new central nervous system transmitter, a simple chemical called glycine, active as a short-term inhibitory transmitter in the spinal cord.  This groundbreaking work (1964-1967) opened the way to the discovery of a host of other chemical messengers in the central nervous system, particularly in the brain.

This work is the forerunner for the upcoming psychiatric revolution. For the first time complex systems knowledge and neuroscience are systematically combined to provide psychiatry with a real basic science of mental disturbances.

Theory is useless without the ability to generate testable predictions. This manuscript provides insight toward new therapies as well as diagnosis of mental disorders. Researchers will find testable predictions for the next generation of psychiatric knowledge and clinicians will find a new neurosciences-oriented etiologicallygenerated diagnostic language for psychiatry.
