Sexual differentiation of central vasopressin and vasotocin systems in vertebrates: Different mechanisms, similar endpoints
Vasopressin neurons in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis and amygdala and vasotocin neurons in homologous areas in non-mammalian vertebrates show some of the most consistently found neural sexExpand

Integration and sensory experience‐dependent survival of newly‐generated neurons in the accessory olfactory bulb of female mice
Newborn neurons generated by proliferative progenitors in the adult subventricular zone (SVZ) integrate into the olfactory bulb circuitry of mammals. Survival of these newly‐formed cells is regulatedExpand
