- Plasticity in brain sexuality is revealed by the rapid actions of steroid hormonesLuke Remage-Healey
Department of Neurobiology and Behavior, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York 14853, USA
J Neurosci 27:1114-22. 2007..Moreover, the fundamental organization/activation principles that predict the steroid-dependent expression of "maleness" and "femaleness" may now include rapid steroid actions on the neurophysiological patterning of behavior...
- Forebrain steroid levels fluctuate rapidly during social interactionsLuke Remage-Healey
Department of Physiological Science, Brain Research Institute, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California 90095, USA
Nat Neurosci 11:1327-34. 2008..This study provides direct evidence that forebrain steroid levels are acutely and differentially regulated during social behavior in a region-specific manner and in a rapid time course similar to that of traditional neuromodulators...
- Elevated aromatase activity in forebrain synaptic terminals during songL Remage-Healey
Department of Physiological Science, Laboratory for Neuroendocrinology, Brain Research Institute, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
J Neuroendocrinol 21:191-9. 2009..Future experiments could assess whether elevated synaptic aromatase activity during song is dependent on acute regulation of the aromatase protein...
- Estradiol interacts with an opioidergic network to achieve rapid modulation of a vocal pattern generatorLuke Remage-Healey
Department of Neurobiology and Behavior, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA
J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol 196:137-46. 2010....
- Brain estrogens rapidly strengthen auditory encoding and guide song preference in a songbirdLuke Remage-Healey
Department of Physiological Science and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:3852-7. 2010..Cognitive impairments associated with estrogen depletion, including verbal memory loss in humans, may therefore stem from compromised moment-by-moment estrogen actions in higher-order cortical circuits...
