There have been no systematic investigations of the effects of glucocorticoid treatment on memory in a clinical population despite experimental and clinical evidence that such treatment could cause memory disturbance.We conducted both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies. In Study 1, we administered tests of both hippocampal-dependent explicit memory and hippocampal-independent implicit memory to twenty-five prednisone-treated patients with systemic disease without CNS involvement and 25… Expand
Effect of two prednisone exposures on mood and declarative memory
TLDR
Data suggest tolerance or habituation, rather than sensitization, to prednisone effects on declarative memory during a second exposure is suggested, suggesting greater effects are observed with repeated exposure. Expand
Effect of phenytoin on mood and declarative memory during prescription corticosteroid therapy
TLDR
This is the first placebo-controlled study to examine whether a medication can prevent mood and memory changes secondary to corticosteroids, and phenytoin did not block the declarative memory effects of cortICosteroids. Expand
Glucocorticoid Therapy-Induced Memory Deficits: Acute versus Chronic Effects
TLDR
Analysis of memory functions and hippocampal volume in 24 patients with rheumatoid arthritis indicates that memory deficits observed under chronically elevated glucocorticoid levels result, at least in part, from acute and reversible glucoc Corticoid effects on memory retrieval. Expand
Do Glucocorticoids Have Adverse Effects on Brain Function?
Glucocorticoids, a class of steroid hormones, can adversely affect the brain, particularly the hippocampus. The effect is most likely to be indirect and in response to either endogenously orExpand
Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of acetaminophen for preventing mood and memory effects of prednisone bursts.
TLDR
Prednisone therapy was associated with a reduction in depressive symptom severity and decline in declarative memory that was not related to changes in asthma symptoms, consistent with prior research suggesting that prednisone impairs memory and may have antidepressant properties. Expand
Impact of levetiracetam on mood and cognition during prednisone therapy
TLDR
Levetiracetam was well tolerated when combined with prednisone and showed significant improvement from baseline to exit on RAVLT total words recalled with a non-significant change on other outcomes. Expand
Acute Cognitive and Behavioral Effects of Systemic Corticosteroids in Children Treated for Inflammatory Bowel Disease
TLDR
In the IBD sample as a whole, few steroid effects were found for laboratory cognitive measures, but steroid-treated patients were rated as exhibiting more problems with emotional, and to a lesser extent with cognitive function in daily life. Expand
Pulsed methylprednisolone induces a reversible impairment of memory in patients with relapsing‐remitting multiple sclerosis
TLDR
In RRMS patients, IVMP induces a selective and reversible impairment of explicit memory which completely recovered 60 days after treatment. Expand

TLDR
Hypomania and mania are the most common mood changes during acute corticosteroid therapy, although depression has also been reported, and moreover, depression is reported to be more common than mania during long‐term treatment with Corticosteroids. Expand
Effect of lamotrigine on mood and cognition in patients receiving chronic exogenous corticosteroids.
TLDR
The pilot data suggest that lamotrigine may be associated with improved mood and performance on cognitive tasks in steroid-treated patients, and larger controlled trials are needed to confirm these preliminary findings. Expand

Memory disturbance in chronic progressive multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
Patients with chronic progressive multiple sclerosis were compared with age- and education-matched control groups on a battery of clinical and experimental memory measures and showed mild memory disturbance, associated with a greater use of psychotropic medications and a higher incidence of reactive depression. Expand
Age effects in serial hypothalamic - pituitary - adrenal monitoring
TLDR
The results indicate that age effects on HPA function may be confounded with other aspects of depression, such as severity, chronicity and number of previous episodes. Expand
Hippocampal formation volume, memory dysfunction, and cortisol levels in patients with Cushing's syndrome
TLDR
An association between reduced HF volume, memory dysfunction, and elevated cortisol in patients with CS is suggested. Expand
Cortisol suppression by dexamethasone in the healthy elderly: Effects of age, dexamethasone levels, and cognitive function
TLDR
An association between advancing age, impaired glucocorticoid feedback, and cognitive dysfunction in healthy human subjects is suggested and results would be consistent with the "glucoc Corticoid cascade" hypothesis of human aging. Expand
Reversible steroid dementia in patients without steroid psychosis.
TLDR
Six patients developed dementia-like cognitive changes that appeared to result from administration of steroid medications, and all six patients eventually recovered normal mental status following discontinuation or reduction of steroids medications. Expand
Cortisol, ACTH, and dexamethasone concentrations in a psychogeriatric population
TLDR
More depressed patients than ATD patients exhibited hypersecretion of ACTH after dexamethasone, which implies that ACTH is less responsive to glucocorticoid feedback in elderly depressed patients, which may be a factor in causing hypercortisolemia. Expand
Relation of neuroleptic and anticholinergic medication to cognitive functions in schizophrenia.
TLDR
It is found that neuroleptic treatment is associated with limited normalization on many psychological measures, whereas anticholinergics appear to disrupt some aspects of memory. Expand
Reverse T3 levels in affective disorders
TLDR
Serum levels of 3,3',5' triidothyronine (reverse T3) were investigated in 32 patients with acute major depressive disorder and there were no significant differences between patients having an abnormal or normal DST test; those having primary or secondary depression; or those having melancholia or notHaving melancholia.

Prolonged glucocorticoid exposure reduces hippocampal neuron number: implications for aging
TLDR
The hypothesis that cumulative exposure to corticosterone over the lifespan may contribute to age-related loss of neurons in the hippocampus is supported, and that prolonged stress or exposure to CORT accelerates this process of cell loss. Expand
Neuropsychiatric manifestations of patients with Cushing's syndrome. Relationship to cortisol and adrenocorticotropic hormone levels.
TLDR
A statistically significant relationship was found between the overall neuropsychiatric disability rating and cortisol and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) levels. Expand
