Gonadal steroid induction of structural sex differences in the central nervous system.
TLDR
It is recognized that gonadal steroids can exert profound effects on the morphogenesis and survival of specific neurons resulting in marked sex differences in eNS structure.
Evidence for the existence of a sexually dimorphic nucleus in the preoptic area of the rat
TLDR
It is concluded that the marked sex difference in the volume of the SDN‐POA is due principally to an increase in the male of the total area of higher cell and neuronal density.
Neurotransmitter specificity of cells and fibers in the medial preoptic nucleus: An immunohistochentical study in the rat
TLDR
The present study evaluated the distribution of possible monoaminergic and peptidergic cells and fibers within the MPN, as well as in adjacent regions of the medial preoptic area of the adult male rat.
Influence of perinatal androgen on the sexually dimorphic distribution of tyrosine hydroxylase-immunoreactive cells and fibers in the anteroventral periventricular nucleus of the rat.
TLDR
The results suggest that the distribution of dopaminergic fibers in the AVPv may be sensitive to testosterone levels in the adult male, and that although the critical period for the development of this fiber distribution may begin in the prenatal period, the number of dopamine-beta-hydroxylase-(DBH-)stained fibers in this nucleus can be completely sex reversed by a single postnatal dose of TP.
Sex difference in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis of the human brain
TLDR
It is possible that in human beings as well, gonadal hormones influence the sexual dimorphism in the BNST‐dspm and that this morphological difference, in part, underlies sexually dimorphic function.
Sexual dimorphism of the anterior commissure and massa intermedia of the human brain
TLDR
Anatomical sex differences in structures that connect the two cerebral hemispheres may, in part, underlie functional sex Differences in cognitive function and cerebral lateralization.
