A range of interests was covered in respect to the influence of glucocorticoids on behavioral responses, as well as to the glucocorticoid status in various behavioral states and disorders.

Book II of this volume contains considerable detail about the various relationships of the glucocorticoids to other hormones with respect to their influence on water and electrolyte excretion. Vol. 5: Bioassay of Anterior Pituitary and Adrenal Cortical Hormones (1953). An entire section was devoted to chemical measurement and bioassay of gluco corticoids in blood and urine, with a comparison of these methods. Vol. 7: Synthesis and Metabolism of Adrenal Cortical Steroids (1954). Additional data on the intermediary metabolism and biosynthesis of the glucocorticoids are available in this volume and supplement the review by HECHTER and PINCUS listed below (cf. DoRFMAN, Chapter 3, Part 1 of this Handbuch volume). Vol. 8: The Human Adrenal Cortex (1955). A very wide range of articles was presented which extended from studies of the adrenal cortex itself to studies of adrenal function in a variety of human somatic and psychological stressful situa tions, and clinical conditions.
