Action of glucocorticoids on survival of nerve cells: promoting neurodegeneration or neuroprotection?

Journal of neuroendocrinology

Extensive studies during the past decades provided compelling evidence that glucocorticoids (GCs) have the potential to affect the development, survival and death of neurones. These observations, however, reflect paradoxical features of GCs, as they may be critically involved in both neurodegenerative and neuroprotective processes. Hence, we first address different aspects of the complex role of GCs in neurodegeneration and neuroprotection, such as concentration dependent actions of GCs on…
