Morphological sex differences and laterality in the prepubertal medial amygdala.

Abstract

The medial amygdala (MeA) is crucial in the expression of sex-specific social behaviors. In adult rats the regional volume of the MeA posterodorsal subnucleus (MeApd) is approximately 50% larger in males than in females. The MeApd is also sexually dimorphic in prepubertal rats. We have recently shown that the left MeApd is significantly larger in… (More)
