Abstract :
[en] This short review focuses on the mechanisms of action of brain derived estrogens, also called neuroestrogens, on male sexual behavior, one of the best characterized examples of estrogen synthesis/action on behavior. After summarizing the modes of regulation of estrogen synthesis and action in the context of this behavior, we identify questions remaining in our under- standing of how neuroestrogens influence complex behaviors and describe the most recent findings providing a beginning of answers to these questions. These questions relate mostly to the characterization of the circuits formed by aromatase neu- rons, the timing of their regulation and the link between behavior-induced fluctuations in neuronal activity and estrogen synthesis/action. Addressing these questions are key steps to understand how neuroestrogens influence complex behaviors.
