Sexual differentiation of the brain has traditionally been thought to be driven by gonadal hormones, particularly testosterone (T). Recent studies in songbirds and other species have indicated that non-gonadal sex steroids may also be important. For example, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)--a sex steroid precursor that can be synthesized in the adrenal glands and/or brain--can be converted into active sex steroids, such as 17beta-estradiol (E(2)), within the brain. Here, we examine plasma DHEA… CONTINUE READING
