A basic understanding of how endocrine dysfunction affects the central nervous system is important for a majority of cases referred for assessment by clinical neuropsychologists. Beyond playing a role in assessment and management in more obvious scenarios, such as pituitary adenoma and Graves' disease, increasing attention is being paid to the role of neuropsychology in assessment and management of cognitive dysfunction due to illnesses with direct or indirect effects on the endocrine system and, secondarily, the central nervous system. This chapter discusses principal syndromes of the neuroendocrine system, disorders involving the thyroid hormones, diabetes mellitus, disorders involving the reproductive hormones, disorders involving the adrenal hormones, and melatonin.

Keywords:   endocrine dysfunction, neuropsychological assessment, neuroendocrine system, hormones, melatonin
