Glucocorticoid hormones, which are released in high amounts after stress, enter the brain where they bind to intracellular receptors that are abundant in limbic areas, in particular the hippocampus and amygdala nuclei. Behavioural studies indicate that glucocorticoids modulate learning and memory processes via receptors in the hippocampus and amygdala. So far, the effects of glucocorticoids on amygdala neurons have not been investigated at the cellular and molecular level. We report here that… CONTINUE READING
