Sexual differentiation of the brain can be considered as a process during which effects of sex steroid hormones secreted during early development is maintained into adulthood. Epigenetic regulation is emerging as a potentially important mechanism of conveyance of long-lasting effects of the hormonal and environmental milieu in the developing brain. Evidence has accumulated to show that epigenetic regulation is involved in the control of sexual differentiation of the brain. In the preoptic area… CONTINUE READING
