Abstract

Reviews the book, As adrenais na fisiologia sexual by Nelson Chaves (1942). With the publication of this study, Dr. Chaves assumed a professorship in the medical faculty of the University of Recife. The work itself concerns the influence of the adrenal cortex on sexual differentiation and development. The relation between the adrenals and the sex glands is considered from the points of view of embryology, histology, physiology, and clinical experience. The relations of the hormones are investigated chemically. These discussions comprise seven chapters, and contain running surveys of the literature of the subject. There follows a chapter containing a report of the author's recent experiments at Recife, where technical facilities often had to be improvised. There is a very extensive bibliography. As might be expected, more than half of the 188 titles counted are references to journal articles appearing in the United States. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
