  • In aged humans, diminished mineralocorticoid receptor (MR)-mediated feedback in the brain could contribute to impaired feedback regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, but no study specifically compared young and old individuals with regard to MR function. We examined 10 healthy young (mean age +/- SD [standard deviation] 26.1 +/- 2.9 years) and 10 elderly men (68.3 +/- 4.7 years) at the nadir of cortisol levels (2:00 pm-9:00 pm) when HPA activity is mainly controlled by… CONTINUE READING
