This field of psychology is a powerful energy in modern society and its influence of human and animal behaviour.

The hormones can be proteins, peptides, steroids or monoamines. These hormones circulate in the bloodstream in very low concentrations. Moreover, hormones exercise their effects on endocrine and non-endocrine target organs by binding to the cell surface or intracellular receptors. According to Carolyn Johnstone (2014), hormone production and release are controlled by the nervous system and by hormonal feedback mechanisms. The endocrine glands produce hormones or chemical messengers that are secreted into the interstitial fluid, diffuse into blood capillaries
and are transmitted via the circulatory system to target organs. The receptors of those target organs are molecules containing of proteins that bind with hormones to stimulate particular physiological changes in the target
