The developmental relationship between DHEA and visual attention is mediated by structural plasticity of cortico-amygdalar networks.

Abstract

Humans and the great apes are the only species demonstrated to exhibit adrenarche, a key developmental event leading to increased production of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), suggesting that this hormone may play an important evolutionary role. Similarly, visual attention networks have been shown to evolve in a human-specific manner, with some anatomical… (More)
