Songbirds have emerged as important animal models for understanding how sex steroids influence brain and behavior, particularly how they direct the sexually dimorphic development of the neural circuits controlling song and then activate adult song behavior. Presumably, sex steroids synthesized in the gonads are responsible for these actions on brain. However, experiments do not always reveal a direct relationship between gonadal function, circulating sex steroids, and activation and/or… CONTINUE READING
