The steroid hormones are lipids in nature, which play crucial roles in several metabolic and behavioral pathways in mammals. Drug therapy uses sterol hormones for treating some disturbances linked with its deficiency; however, the illicit use of these hormones by amateur and elite athletes to enhance performance or body appearance may lead to several health issues. In this study we evaluated the anxious-like behavior and the long-term memory acquisition of male rats undergoing sedentary life-style or physical effort, with or without anabolic-androgenic steroids (ASC) treatment. The results showed a decrease in anxious-like behavioral levels in rats that received ASC treatment associated or not with physical effort, but this treatment did not affect the acquisition of long-term memory at the dose and experimental model assessed.(AU)
