Role of corticosteroid hormones in the dentate gyrus.

  title={Role of corticosteroid hormones in the dentate gyrus.},
  author={Marian Jo{\"e}ls},
  journal={Progress in brain research},
Dentate granule cells are enriched with receptors for the stress hormone corticosterone, i.e., the high-affinity mineralocorticoid receptor (MR), which is already extensively occupied with low levels of the hormone, and the glucocorticoid receptor (GR), which is particularly activated after stress. More than any other cell type in the brain studied so far, dentate granule cells require hormone levels to be within the physiological range. In the absence of corticosteroids, proliferation and… CONTINUE READING
