The available evidence to date suggests that many of the aspects of neuronal functioning affected by gonadal steroids under steady state conditions are also significantly affected by steroids under stress conditions such as axon disconnection. This argues toward a therapeutic usefulness of gonadal steroids in activating and/or accelerating the reparative response of neurons to injury, a concept that will be exciting to test in future clinical studies.
