Although reduced cortisol reactivity to stress and increased circulating testosterone level are hypothesized to be associated with higher levels of externalizing behavior, empirical findings are inconsistent. One factor that may account for the heterogeneity in these relationships is prenatal testosterone exposure. This study examined whether the second-to-fourth digit ratio (2D:4D), a putative marker of prenatal testosterone exposure, moderates the relationships of testosterone and cortisol…

Salivary testosterone diurnal variation and psychopathology in adolescent males and females: Individual differences and developmental effects
TLDR
High levels of testosterone and testosterone levels that decreased more slowly across the day were related to higher levels of anxiety–depression and attention problems, and these associations were not moderated by pubertal development.
Cortisol and externalizing behavior in children and adolescents: mixed meta-analytic evidence for the inverse relation of basal cortisol and cortisol reactivity with externalizing behavior.
TLDR
There was no significant relation between cortisol and externalizing behavior in adolescents and the age of the children significantly moderated this relation.
Association between a marker for prenatal testosterone exposure and externalizing behavior problems in children
TLDR
Results provide limited cross-cultural support for the importance of prenatal androgen exposure in contributing to the development of externalizing behavior problems in children, and they suggest that such effects may be specific to boys who may be relatively more vulnerable to early prenatal influences.
Sex differences in 2D:4D and aggression in children and adolescents from five regions of Russia.
TLDR
It is suggested that the associations between digit ratio and aggression in a sample of children and adolescents from five regions of Russia and self-ratings on physical aggression in boys, but not in girls may be due to sex differences in prenatal androgen secretion.
