THE INFLUENCE OF THE ENDOCRINES

IN THE PSYCHONEUROSES1.

By W. LANGDON BROWN.

a

SYNOPSIS. The hormone theory at one time tended to an undue depreciation of the importance of the nervous control of the body. The primitive nervous system was evolved for defensive purposes, and the sympathetic nervous system retains primitive features both structurally and functionally. There is a close association between the sympathetic nervous system and the endocrine glands as defensive mechanisms, and their action is reciprocal. The endocrines, gonads and sympathetic nervous system form a basic tripod entrusted with the defence of the individual and the continuity of the species. Endocrine glands may be influenced by toxic, nutritional and psychic factors, so that they may, alike, cause or be affected by a psychoneurosis. The endocrine-sympathetic system is merely the lowest level of the whole nervous system, and is inextricably entangled with the other levels. Hence the important influence of the endocrine system on psychical life.

The theory of internal secretion has always been in advance of the facts. The very name was introduced by Claud Bernard when the only known example was the glycogenic function of the liver. Brown-Sequard's interesting hypotheses rested on but a small substratum of fact. Yet subsequent observations have confirmed many of their generalisations. This may happen with the uncontrolled speculations on endocrinology
