Anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) constitute a large subset of synthetic derivatives of the male sex hormone; testosterone that is used for cosmetic and ergogenic purposes. In addition to improvement in performance and other properties such as tissue building, perpetual use of anabolic androgenic steroid is associated with diverse behavioral changes, including aggression, violence, and impulsivity. While positive impacts have been reported in the early course of using anabolic steroids, other adverse effects have been documented with long-term use. These include anxiety, impulsivity, aggression, and irritability. In the same vein, AAS have been found to have a profound impact on the structure and function of the brain, particularly during adolescence. AAS takes advantage of the neuroplasticity and the dynamic changes that occur an adolescent’s brain and in so doing that alter the structure and function of the brain. The most affected regions are the components of the limbic system, specifically the hippocampus and amygdala.
