Sex differences in spatial learning have been reported in both humans and rodents. Correspondingly, there have been reports of sexual dimorphism in the morphology of the hippocampal formation (HF), a brain structure implicated in spatial cognition. In Experiment 1, we confirmed earlier reports that the overall volume of the granule cell layer (GCL) of the dentate gyrus (DG) of A/J mice is larger in males than in females. We also found that male A/J mice have a larger GCL volume in the right… CONTINUE READING
