Glucocorticoids, hormones secreted by the adrenal cortex, can get access to the brain, where they induce a variety of cellular, molecular, and functional actions. Recent evidence showed that glucocorticoids are potent modulators of cognitive processes, such as learning, memory, and retrieval. In particular, the stress response induced by learning a new task, together with the consequent release of glucocorticoids, have been critically involved in memory consolidation processes.
