of neurotransmitter receptors by vitamin D, for example, 1α, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3,has not yet been demonstrated. Although it remains questionable whether vitamin D fulfils the strict formal criteria of a neurosteroid or a neuroactive steroid, 1α, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 shares common mechanisms of action with steroid hormones, such as the intracellular crosstalk between genomic and non-genomic effects.
