    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anabolic androgenic steroids; testosterone; nandrolone; trenbolone; stanozolol; central nervous system; primary cortical cell cultures; rats; multivariate concentric square field; novel object recognition.; Farmaceutisk vetenskap; Pharmaceutical Science;

    Abstract : The use of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) for recreational purposes is a health concern, as long-term AAS-use in supraphysiological doses is associated with severe physical and psychological adverse effects. Several behavioral and cognitive problems are reported after long-term AAS-use, and alterations in brain morphology as well as neurotransmitter systems have been reported. READ MORE

  3. 3. Testosterone and 17beta-oestradiol secretions in children and adolescents. Assay development, levels for comparison and clinical applications
