This chapter discusses the actions of gonadal hormones on synaptic plasticity and cellular replacement, and the potential mechanisms involved in the hormonal actions. It begins by examining the actions of ovarian hormones—estradiol and progesterone— on neural plasticity, followed by an analysis of the effects of testicular androgens. The neuroplastic effects of the adrenal androgen dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) are also considered when analyzing the effects of testicular androgens.

Keywords:   gonadal hormones, estradiol, progesterone, synaptic plasticity, neuronal replacement, androgens, cellular replacement
