    McEwen B, Tanapat P, Weiland N. Inhibition of dendritic spine induction on hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons by a nonsteroidal estrogen antagonist in female rats. Endocrinology. 1999;140:1044-7 pubmed
    ..This result is consistent with an action of estradiol via intracellular estrogen receptors that are known to be expressed by interneurons within the hippocampus. ..

    McEwen B. Allostasis, allostatic load, and the aging nervous system: role of excitatory amino acids and excitotoxicity. Neurochem Res. 2000;25:1219-31 pubmed
    ..Moreover, the brain retains considerable resilience in the face of stress, and estrogens appear to play a role in this resilience. This review discusses the current status of work on underlying mechanisms for these effects. ..
