Neuroendocrinology Congress June 1922 to report new research on brain, hormones, behavior

PITTSBURGH, June 5 New clinical and basic science research findings focusing on the interaction between hormones and the brain and its influence on behavior will be presented for the first time at the 6th International Congress of Neuroendocrinology (ICN 2006) in Pittsburgh from June 19 to 22.

Results of this placebo-controlled study involving nearly 400 men and women will be reported.

A team of Swiss and American investigators will report results from a trial looking to determine if the hormone, delivered as a nasal spray, can reduce stress during tense social interactions or conflict.
