Abstract [en]

It is obvious that brain is modifiable when subjected to long-term exposure to certain trauma and stress but also to abusing drugs. Chronic exposure to most drugs of abuse seems to induce a decline in cognitive functions. However, it also appears evident that the treatment with cognitive enhancers, such as growth hormone (GH), may reverse some of the disabilities observed after exposure to abusing drugs but also to cognitive impairment induced by type-1 diabetes. This report describes some recent findings in our laboratory regarding reversal of cognitive dysfunctions by recombinant human GH in experimental animals but also in human. The hormone seems to induce its effects by interaction through a mechanism involving excitatory amino acids.
