Neurosteroids are very important for nerve conduction in the brain. The levels decrease as we age, and are lower in those with depression, high stress, and also brains with hypoxic injury. Wish the researchers would ask, why are neurosteroids low in an MS brain? And look at hippocampal atrophy in depression and MS. In any event, they're important....but are not a "cure."
