Hippocampal Volume in Healthy Controls Given 3-Day Stress Doses of Hydrocortisone


In animal models, corticosterone elevations are associated with hippocampal changes that can be prevented with phenytoin. In humans, Cushing’s syndrome and long-term prescription corticosteroid use are associated with a reduction in the hippocampal volume. However, little is known about the effects of short-term corticosteroid administration on the… (More)
