Estrogen rapidly alters the excitability of hypothalamic neurons that are involved in regulating numerous homeostatic functions including reproduction, stress responses, feeding and motivated behaviors. Some of the neurons include neurosecretory neurons such as gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and dopamine neurons, and local circuitry neurons such as proopiomelanocortin (POMC) and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) neurons. We have elucidated several non-genomic pathways through which the… CONTINUE READING
