    Default To what extent do hormones affect a person's behaviour?

    I have a friend who is moodier now than last year so I always have to get on her good side. Sadly, she has PMDD, it's a hormonal disorder and it's possible that she may not conceive. It made me wonder, to what extent do hormones affect our behaviour? Of course there is no denying that hormones can influence our actions and feelings, but if a person has hormonal imbalance, can this affect a person's overall behaviour?

    Dear Manero,

    I think you can easily look up some information on this, however many people suffer from depression that relates to the amount of serotonin they produce and there are many other common hormone imbalances, that make people unable to live among others, because they would be a danger to them. Here's a very basic article on it http://www.livestrong.com/article/17...one-imbalance/

    If you are interested in more scholarly articles, check out Google scholar and you will see all the different disorders and current research/medical treatments.

    All the best,

    Annita

    Thanks for the answer. I know I shouldn't blame hormones alone for a behaviour but it did make me think how influential hormones are.
