Hormones and Brain Plasticity

Luis Miguel García-Segura

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines, with more detail and in a broader context, the interaction of hormones and brain plasticity under pathological conditions. It begins by reviewing the evidence indicating that pathological brain remodeling affects hormonal secretions. It then considers how pathological alterations in hormone levels or hormonal signaling, due to endocrine diseases or other causes, affect brain plasticity and function. Finally, the chapter analyzes the influence of specific hormones on the reorganization of nervous tissue after injury or neurodegeneration.

Keywords:   brain plasticity, hormonal secretions, hormonal signaling, neuroprotection
