Hormonal effects on behaviours in animals and humans are now well enough understood for general statements about causal steps to be proposed. Facilitation or repression of a given behaviour by a given hormone can depend on the person's genetic and developmental history, on the temporal and spatial parameters of the hormone's administration, on the hormone's metabolism and on the specific receptor isoform available in a given neuron. The gene for oestrogen receptor-alpha is required for an… CONTINUE READING
