It accounts for 100 million consultations a year worldwide. Aggravated by stress, it can announce future deterioration in the nervous system.

Testosterone in sufficient amount lowers naturally the amount of  MAO (MONO AMINE OXYDASE) (3)

The influence of testosterone on the nervous system are numerous.

In 1971, Harold Persky, a researcher from the National Institute of Mental Health of the US Public Health Service, reported in the revue Psychosomatic Medicine the relation of psychological measures of aggression and hostility to testosterone production in man (1).

The plasma levels of testosterone were studied in young men and older men. In young man there is a correlation between testosterone plasma levels and measures of aggression and hostility. This equation was not valid for older men.

In 1974, Joel Ehrenkrantz, from the Department of Psychiatry from the Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut, and his collaborators reported the correlation between testosterone plasma levels with aggressive behaviour and social dominance in man (2).

When you consider the statistics of deaths by accident of the National Centre for Health Statistics, you see immediately that, under 65 year, men are dying threefold more than women, after 65 years the death rate is the same for women and men who have lost their male hormones and their aggressivity.

BRAIN DETERIORATION

Near Amsterdam, Dirck Swaab, from the Dutch Institute for Brain Research, has demonstrated the trophic influence of testosterone on  rats' brains. Microscopic observations show a good ramification of brain's cells in young rats. Those ramifications disappear in old rats but reappear under the influence of testosterone pellets implanted under the skin. This phenomenon is probably the same in men.
