Background: Chronically elevated brain glucocorticoid (GC) levels impair cognition. In rodents, raised GC levels prior to lipopolyaccharide (LPS) administration potentiate neuroinflammation although GC suppresses neuroinflammation if administered after LPS. 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase-1 (11β-HSD1) activity can increase intracellular GC levels, including in the brain, without alteration in circulating levels. 11β-HSD1 deficiency/inhibition protects against a...
