We have previously demonstrated that systemic administration of testosterone accelerates functional recovery, as measured behaviorally, from facial paralysis induced by facial nerve crush axotomy in gonadectomized adult male hamsters. In this investigation, the hypothesis that testosterone enhances return of motor function by increasing the rate of axonal regeneration following injury was tested using fast axonal transport of radioactively labeled proteins to assess facial nerve regeneration… CONTINUE READING
