    Keywords : Estradiol; progesterone; HRT; allopregnanolone; UC1011; serotonin receptor; GABAA receptor; mRNA; Morris water maze; silent second; tolerance; Clinical Neurophysiology; klinisk neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Several studies suggest profound effects on mood and cognition by neuroactive steroids. Estrogen alone or in combination with antidepressant drugs affecting the serotonin system has been used to treat mood disorders. On the other hand, progesterone is related to negative effects on mood and memory. READ MORE

  2. 12. Studies of hyperandrogenicity and the metabolic syndrome in premenopausal women

    Keywords : androgens; SHBG; HPA axis; abdominal obesity; insulin; HDL; metabolic syndrome; ovarian volume; PCOS; polymorphism; genetics; androgen receptor; estrogen receptor; aromatase;

    Abstract : An androgenic sex hormone profile appears to be a typical feature of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) and a powerful risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes in women. The causes of relative hyperandrogenicity (HA) are not clearly defined. READ MORE
