In several species, including rat and vole, the proliferation of new neurons in the adult dentate gyrus (DG) subgranular zone (SGZ) is influenced by both gender and endogenous levels of the gonadotropic steroid hormone estradiol. However, little is known about how adult neurogenesis is regulated by these factors in the mouse. We report here that adult C57BL/6 mice do not have gender differences in hippocampal proliferation or neurogenesis. In addition, the production of new SGZ cells in female… CONTINUE READING
