According to current knowledge, neurosteroids are synthesized throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems by both glial cells and neurons. It is important to determine in which part of the nervous system and in which cell type a particular neurosteroid is synthesized.

One of the “givens” of steroid biology was that they were lipid-soluble compounds secreted from peripheral endocrine organs; their effects on the central nervous system therefore were dependent on passage across the blood–brain barrier and subsequent binding to macromolecular receptors in steroid-sensitive areas of the by: 1.   Neurosteroid Effects in the Central Nervous System: The This book presents a complete overview of the effects of steroid hormones in the brain and describes new methods for investigating these : DB Jones. Neurosteroid Effects in the Central Nervous System by Sheryl S. Smith Book Resume: Our understanding of the ways that neuroactive steroids act in the brain has been increased by transgenic approaches, recombinant expression systems, higher resolution electrophysiological paradigms, and the development of technology to localize receptors.
