DHEA(S) enhances the acquisition and consolidation stages of memory in animal models of memory. • DHEA(S) does not appear to enhance recall in animal models of memory. • DHEA(S) can reverse pharmacologically induced amnesia in animal models. • DHEA(S) may play a role in age-dependent cognitive decline. • DHEA(S) supplementation has not yet been convincingly shown to enhance learning and memory in normal human ageing.
