The hormones that regulate the hypothalamic circuits that control essential functions, such as reproduction and energy homeostasis, also specify brain architecture by regulating key developmental events. The cellular mechanisms underlying the developmental actions of testosterone and estrogen to determine patterns of neuronal cell death, synaptogenesis and axon guidance are being identified. Recent neuroanatomical evidence indicates that the adipocyte-derived hormone leptin may direct the… Expand
