    Deveroux Ferguson
    Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305, USA
    J Neurosci 27:8046-52. 2007
    ..Thus, this study illustrates the critical role of MR in mediating the retrieval and consolidation of nonspatial memory...

    Deveroux Ferguson
    Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305 5020, USA
    Neurosci Lett 437:1-4. 2008
    ..These data add to the growing evidence that increasing estrogenic signaling can protect against the impairing effects of stress on non-spatial memory...

    Deveroux Ferguson
    Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, California, USA
    Hippocampus 18:1103-11. 2008
    ..These findings illustrate the potential beneficial effects of increasing MR signaling or decreasing GR signaling to enhance specific aspects of cognitive function...
  4. doi request reprint Mineralocorticoid receptor overexpression in basolateral amygdala reduces corticosterone secretion and anxiety
    Rupshi Mitra
    Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305, USA
    Biol Psychiatry 66:686-90. 2009
    ..Prolonged and heavy occupancy of GRs tends to mediate the deleterious effects of glucocorticoids on neurons, whereas MR occupancy tends to mediate beneficial effects...

    Andrea Nicholas
    Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305 5020, USA
    J Neurosci 26:11637-43. 2006
    ..Thus, ER/GR expression enhances spatial memory performance and blocks the impairing effects of GCs on such performance...

    Veronica Bisagno
    Department of Psychology, Hunter College of the City University of New York, 695 Park Ave, New York, NY 10021, USA
    Brain Res 940:95-101. 2002
    ..Our results demonstrate that a short toxic schedule induced profound changes in neurochemistry (comparable to classic acute toxic models of MA: four injections of 10 mg/kg) but selective declines in behavioral tasks...
