Brain aromatase, estrogens, and behavior

Author: J Balthazart; Gregory F Ball
Publisher: Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2013.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
This book collects chapters by experts in the field that considers, how estradiol is synthesized in the brain and what its effects are on a variety of behaviors. Special attention is paid to the enzyme aromatase that is distributed in discrete regions of the brain and is highly regulated in a sex specific and seasonal specific manner.

More information:


This book concerns how estrogens are synthesized in the brain and their two modes of action on behavior: a slow process involving gene transcription and a faster action at the cell membrane. The  Read more...
