The study of epigenetics allows for the understanding of gene × environmental interactions and provides a mechanism by which brief internal or external environmental changes can shape lasting differences in gene function and behavior. Epigenetic processes appear to impact a wide variety of physiological processes within the developing brain, including neuroendocrine function. An epigenetic model is proposed by which steroid hormones and the social environment induces appropriate masculinization… CONTINUE READING
