Summary Note Aromatase—or estrogen, as it is commonly known—is present in the brain and has been the subject of much recent research, not only with regard to menopause and the dwindling supply of estrogen and its impact on cognition, but the role estrogen in aging and plasticity in the brain. This book provides a review of what is known about aromatase and its distribution and regulation in the brain, and its many effects on behavior. The volume covers research on mammals (from rats to monkeys), as well as work done on birds, reptiles and amphibians, and fishes. Topics range from behavioral effects (genomic) of locally produced estrogen in the brain; aromatase and sexual differentiation; rapid changes in brain aromatase as a result of environmental effects; aromatase and brain repair; the rapid effects of estrogens on behavior; rapid effect of estrogen on sensory (auditory) processing; and a concluding statement on current challenges to research.:
