Abstract:Findings from these studies highlight the distinct actions of estradiol in the hippocampus to enhance place learning and in the striatum to impair response learning. By altering the responsiveness of hippocampal and striatal cells to experience, estradiol biases the type of information obtained, resulting in enhanced or impaired learning depending on the task variables.
