Abstract

In the 1980’s it was realised that steroids could be biosynthesised in brain, and that neurosteroids exert effects on the nervous system by modulating neurotransmission. It is now recognised that neurosteroids play a physiological role in cognitive aging, and havebeen proposed as biomarkers of this...
