  1. 1. Anabolic Androgenic Steroids : Effects on Neuropeptide Systems in the Rat Brain

    Author : Mathias Hallberg; Fred Nyberg; Pierre Le Grevès; James Zadina; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biological research on drug dependence; Anabolic androgenic steroids; Nandrolone decanoate; Substance P; NK1 receptor; Substance P 1-7 ; Endopeptidase; Opioids; Calcitonin gene-related peptide; Radioimmunoassay; Autoradiography; Central nervous system; Rats; Biologisk beroendeforskning; Biological research on drug dependence; Biologisk beroendeforskning;

    Abstract : Anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) have been used in clinics for decades. The misuse of AAS has previously been attributed merely to sport athletes, taking AAS with intentions to increase muscle mass, enhance physical performance and to improve results in competitions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Strenght training and anabolic steroids : a comparative study of the trapezius, a shoulder muscle and the vastus lateralis, a thigh muscle, of strength trained athletes

    Author : Anders Eriksson; Bengt Saltin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : strength training; anabolic steroids; vastus lateralis; trapezius; enzymehistochemistry; immunohistochemistry; muscle fiber; myonuclei; satellite cell; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Strength training is widely used to increase performance in sports with high physical demands. The use of drugs such as anabolic steroids among athletes is a wellknown phenomenon, and the effects of these drugs on physical performance documented. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anabolic Androgenic Steroids and Criminality

    Author : Fia Klötz; Ingemar Thiblin; Niklas Långström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Psychiatry; Anabolic steroids; Violence; Crime; Substance abuse; Psykiatri;

    Abstract : Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) have been associated with adverse psychiatric effects, aggression and violent behaviour. The use of them has spread to a larger subpopulation, and the use has been connected to different risk behaviours, such as use of other illicit substances and carrying a gun. READ MORE

  4. 4. Growth Hormone and Anabolic Androgenic Steroids : Effects on Neurochemistry and Cognition

    Author : Alfhild Grönbladh; Mathias Hallberg; Jörgen Isgaard; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Growth hormone; anabolic androgenic steroids; nandrolone decanoate; insulin-like growth factor; GABAB; opioids; memory; water maze; autoradiography; central nervous system; rats; Biological Research on Drug Dependence; Biologisk beroendeforskning;

    Abstract : Growth hormone (GH) stimulates growth and metabolism but also displays profound effects on the central nervous system (CNS). GH affects neurogenesis and neuroprotection, and has been shown to counteract drug-induced apoptosis in the brain. READ MORE

  5. 5. Anabolic Androgenic Steroids and the Brain : Studies of Neurochemical and Behavioural Changes Using an Animal Model

    Abstract : A new group of anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) users has developed during the last two decades. This group consists primarily of young men interested in improving their physical appearance. Within this group, AAS are sometimes used together with other illicit drugs, alcohol and nicotine.
