Xenoestrogens are man-made compounds that mimic the actions of estrogens through interactions with estrogen receptors (ERs). Although xenoestrogens have received a great deal of attention as possible causes of brain disfunctions, little information concerning the effects of xenoestrogens on the central nervous system is available. In this study, we investigated the effects of 17beta-estradiol (E(2)) and four xenoestrogens (17alpha-ethynylestradiol, diethylstilbestrol, p-nonylphenol and… CONTINUE READING
