Most people consider Neuroendocrinology a sub-specialty that deals with brain tumors that secrete hormones or that stop hormone secretion. However, Dr. Anton Coleman is one of a mere handful of skillful physicians, highly trained to recognize and treat behavioral disorders that arise from hormonal abnormalities, usually related to abnormal hormone levels, that do not necessarily stem from a tumor.
Take for example PMS [pre-menstrual syndrome] with agitated, aggressive behavior and hallucinations, memory loss occurring at menopause, epileptic disorders where hormones worsen seizures or cause inappropriate social behavior, and women with too much testosterone or men with too much estrogen linked to aggressive behavior.
Another important chapter is the role that estrogens (and testosterone) may play as protective agents in stroke and dementia (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease).
