Memory-enhancing effects of DHEAS in aged mice on a win-shift water escape task
The neurosteroid pregnenolone sulfate reduces learning deficits induced by scopolamine and has promnestic effects in mice performing an appetitive learning task
The effects of the neurosteroid pregnenolone sulfate (PS) on learning as well as on scopolamine-induced learning deficits were studied in Swiss mice using an appetitively reinforced Go-No Go visual
The synthetic enantiomer of pregnenolone sulfate is very active on memory in rats and mice, even more so than its physiological neurosteroid counterpart: Distinct mechanisms?
The demonstration that the neurosteroid pregnenolone sulfate (PREGS) is active on memory function at both the physiological and pharmacological levels led to us examining in detail the effects of the
Neurosteroids and GABA-A Receptor Function
Molecular mechanisms underlying neurosteroid action on the GABAA-receptor, mood changes, and cognitive functions are described.


Memory-enhancing effects in male mice of pregnenolone and steroids metabolically derived from it.
P and PS may exert their effects by serving as precursors for the formation of a panoply of different steroids, ensuring near-optimal modulation of transcription of immediate-early genes required for achieving the plastic changes of memory processes.
