Corticosteroid effects on electrical properties of brain cells: temporal aspects and role of antiglucocorticoids.


Pyramidal cells in the CA1 hippocampal area express both mineralo- and glucocorticoid receptors (MRs and GRs respectively) to which the rat adrenal hormone corticosterone binds effectively. Through activation of these receptors corticosteroids exert a delayed and persistent control over signal transduction in the hippocampus. Many cellular responses are… (More)
