    Sexual difference in the brain has long been one of the more intriguing research areas in the field of neuroscience. This thorough and comprehensive text uncovers and explains recent neurobiological and molecular biological studies in the field of neuroscience as they relate to the mechanisms underlying sexual differentiation of the brain. The sexual differentiation of the human brain also seems to proceed predominantly under the influence of sex hormones. Recent studies using magnetic resonance imaging have shown that several sexually differentiated aspects of brain structure and function are female-typical in women with complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS), who have Cited by: 4.

    Sexual differentiation is the process of development of the differences between males and females from an undifferentiated zygote. Appearance of Sertoli cells in males and granulosa cells in females can be thought of as the starting point for testicular or ovarian differentiation in many species.. As male and female individuals develop from embryos into mature adults, sex differences at many. A general theory of sexual differentiation of the brain derives from classic experiments performed in the twentieth century, which showed that androgens from the testes act early in the development to cause some regions of the male’sFile Size: 1MB.

The mechanism of sexual differentiation of the brain: neurobiological factors. In male rats, testosterone is turned into estrogens locally in the brain, and these estrogens then masculinize the brain. In humans, however, the main mechanism appears to involve the direct effects of testosterone on the developing brain.

The androgen insensitivity syndrome is caused by mutations in the receptor Cited by: The study of sexual differentiation of the brain has long focused on a few model cases of brain function (for example, sex behavior, control of ovulation) and brain regions that are predominantly involved in reproduction and therefore show large sex differences that are amenable to by: Sexual Differentiation of the Brain thoroughly examines these techniques and findings, providing an up-to-date, comprehensive overview written by leading researchers in the field.
