Conclusion:

- the present review shows that fluctuations in steroid hormones influenced, by factors such as age and health status, have consequences at the level of CNS and PNS

- utilizing both classical and non-classical pathways, neurosteroids participate in the physiological regulation of neurogenesis, neuronal survival, synaptic function, and myelin formation, thus influencing neuronal plasticity

- because of these effects, neurosteroids will have different modulatory actions, exerting control over mood, cognition, and behavior

- additionally, they have a neuroprotective role in relation to certain neurocognitive pathologies
