- We can order this
This book provides an up-to-date overview of the role of neurosteroids and neuroactive steroids in the regulation of brain processes and neuropsychiatric disorders. It addresses the neurosteroid function in brain development and plasticity, in both the normal and the pathological brain. It also suggests possible therapeutic approaches to the use of natural occurring or sinthetic neurosteroids. The contributors suggest that neuroactive steroids could have a role in clinical practice.

"This is a first rate book on an exciting area: steroids and the brain. ... Written and edited by active researchers involved in this area of study, this book is a must for anyone interested in keeping abreast of this exploding field. ... The targeted audience includes clinicians, researchers, and students. ... This is an excellent, comprehensive book covering an important and emerging area of neuropsychiatric research. Anyone wishing to stay up to date on neurosteroids would benefit from reading it." (Michael J. Schrift, Doody's Review Service, July, 2008)
"Neuroactive Steroids in Brain Function, Behavior, and Neuropsychiatric Disorders: Novel Strategies for Research and Treatment provides reviews on neurosteroid mechanisms of action, their role in brain function, and their probable therapeutic as well as contributory roles to neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders. ... is recommended for researchers interested in neurosteroids but also for clinicians who are able to devote enough time and attention to the material."
