Finger-length ratios and sexual orientation
Animal models have indicated that androgenic steroids acting before birth might influence the sexual orientation of adult humans. Here we examine the androgen-sensitive pattern of finger lengths, andExpand

A brain sexual dimorphism controlled by adult circulating androgens.
Reports of structural differences between the brains of men and women, heterosexual and homosexual men, and male-to-female transsexuals and other men have been offered as evidence that the behavioralExpand

Sexual Differentiation of the Vertebrate Brain: Principles and Mechanisms
A wide variety of sexual dimorphisms, structural differences between the sexes, have been described in the brains of many vertebrate species, including humans. In animal models of neural sexualExpand

Differences in Finger Length Ratios Between Self-Identified “Butch” and “Femme” Lesbians
There is indirect evidence that heightened exposure to early androgen may increase the probability that a girl will develop a homosexual orientation in adulthood. One such putative marker of earlyExpand

Estradiol potentiation of NR2B‐dependent EPSCs is not due to changes in NR2B protein expression or phosphorylation
The hormone, 17β‐estradiol (E2), influences the structure and function of synapses in the CA1 region of the hippocampus. E2 increases the density of dendritic spines and excitatory synapses on CA1Expand

Evaluation of Components of Fusarium Head Blight Resistance in Soft Red Winter Wheat Germ Plasm Using a Detached Leaf Assay.
A large environmental influence on phenotypic estimates of disease resistance and the complex polygenic nature of Fusarium head blight (FHB) resistance in wheat (Triticum aestivum) are impediments toExpand

Sexually Dimorphic Synaptic Organization of the Medial Amygdala
The medial amygdala is important in social behaviors, many of which differ between males and females. The posterodorsal subnucleus of the medial amygdala (MeApd) is particularly sensitive to gonadalExpand

Gonadal hormone modulation of dendrites in the mammalian CNS.
This review focuses on the effect of gonadal steroid hormones, androgen and estrogen, on dendrites in the adult rat central nervous system (CNS). Four hormone-responsive nuclei are considered: TheExpand

Both estrogen receptors and androgen receptors contribute to testosterone-induced changes in the morphology of the medial amygdala and sexual arousal in male rats
In male rats, a steroid-sensitive circuit in the forebrain regulates mating behavior. The masculine phenotype in one component of the circuit, the posterodorsal nucleus of the medial amygdala (MePD),Expand

Morphological sex differences and laterality in the prepubertal medial amygdala
The medial amygdala (MeA) is crucial in the expression of sex‐specific social behaviors. In adult rats the regional volume of the MeA posterodorsal subnucleus (MeApd) is ≈50% larger in males than inExpand
