In Episode 22 we are joined by Ryan Tomm from the University of British Columbia to chat about steroids and behavioural flexibility. Ryan shares how androgens effect executive functioning, behavioural flexibility, and adaptability. How does testosterone effect behaviour? What does rodent research tell us about humans? Is dopamine the most important neurotransmitter? All this and much more in Steroids and Behavioural Flexibility with Ryan Tomm.
Interested in some of the research discussed?
