  • Steroids and Neuronal Activityby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Classical studies of steroid hormones are concerned with their regulation of protein synthesis via the modulation of genomic transcription. But many of the actions of these hormones occur too rapidly to be explained in this manner, particularly their effects on the central nervous system. This text deals with recent discoveries showing that steroids... more...
