Summary This thesis explores the metabolism of the steroid progesterone within both rat and mouse brain cells in culture. The research identified a steroid 21-hydroxylase within the rat culture system, that has downstream implications on stress and behaviour. Novel uses for a stain to accurately discriminate two brain celltypes were discovered
