The differences with the greatest effects sizes were also areas richly endowed with sex steroid receptors during development as determined by animal models [ 19 ]. Sexual differentiation: A lifespan approach. Antigen-antibody complexes were visualized as a black reaction product by incubating sections in 0.
While a factor to account for age was included in all analyses, the authors note that it is possible that males were on the upward portion of their developmental trajectory in brain volume while females were on the downward trajectory, making exact comparisons difficult.
The basal ganglia are a collection of subcortical nuclei caudate, putamen, globus pallidus, subthalamic nucleus, and substantia nigra that are involved in circuits mediating movement, higher cognitive functions, attention, and affective states.
Male and female brains are overwhelmingly more alike than different. Disruption of the gene encoding SF-1 alters the distribution of hypothalamic neuronal phenotypes. Figure 1. Nat Rev Neurosci.
Gender differences in age at onset of schizophrenia. Although many potential measures of water diffusion can be obtained from diffusion imaging data, the most frequently reported metrics are general diffusivity, a measure of how quickly water diffuses in any direction, and fractional anisotropy FAwhich refers to the proportion of water molecules within a certain brain region that are diffusing in the same direction.
Early in development, GABA acts as an activating neurotransmitter and induces synaptogenesis.
Neurology, endocrinology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, ''none of these gives us the master key'' to understanding human life and development and the interplay between masculinity and femininity.
The VMH is a site with a long history of findings related to sex differences in morphology and molecular phenotypes that make the findings of sex differences in the VMH in the current study particularly relevant to a body weight phenotype Matsumoto and Arai, , ; Romano et al.
