Effects of sex steroid hormones on memory

INTRODUCTION Sex hormones are steroids produced predominantly by the reproductive glands, either the ovaries or testes, including estrogens, progestogens and androgens. Besides influencing reproductive behavior, gonadal hormones are also assumed to have an influence on many cerebral function (Fig. 1). Gonadal steroids have an impact on many cerebral functions, including brain development, synaptic plasticity, and modulation of neurotransmitter systems, such as acetylcholine (Ach), serotonin (5

Sex and body mass index implications on gluteofemoral subcutaneous tissue morphology visualized by ultrasonography – preliminary study

Introduction Over the last decades, subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) has been a subject of interest for many specialists in various fields of medicine, such as cardiology, endocrinology and metabolic diseases. There are numerous reports on the endocrine function of SAT(1,2) and the impact of sex hormones on its distribution(3,4). SAT is described anatomically as a continuous structure(5). However, recent findings indicate that it is divided into many compartments separately supplied with blood

The Multiplex Social Environments of Young Black Men Who Have Sex with Men: How Online and Offline Social Structures Impact HIV Prevention and Sex Behavior Engagement

Introduction Despite salient strides in HIV elimination efforts in the United States, some populations, most notably young men who have sex with men (YMSM), remain disproportionately affected (CDC, 2014b). Among them, young Black MSM (YBMSM) bear the heaviest burden of new HIV infections, accounting for more than any other subgroup by race/ethnicity, age and sex (CDC, 2016). Reasons for these race and age-based disparities are varied and not well understood, especially as YBMSM tend to

There were some weak trends for boys with ASD to show more compulsive behavior, inattention/hyperactivity and taste sensory overresponsivity than girls with ASD, but differences were not significant after controlling for multiple comparisons. The Block Design task, assessing attention to detail, showed a significant sex difference, with boys with ASD outperforming both girls with ASD and typically developing girls.Predominantly low functioning girls with ASD differed from typically

Marble burying as compulsive behaviors in male and female mice

Marble burying is considered an, albeit controversial, animal model of the compulsive like behaviors of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Hallmark features of OCD patients are similarities and, more prominent, differences from anxiety disorders, e.g., the absence of sex differences and resistance to spontaneous remission. We report an experiment on marble burying by male and female C57/BL6/N mice. Animals were administered either the classic anxiolytic drug, diazepam, that targets the GABA

frequencies was observed in both sexes. Initially no sag was visible in unfused tetani, but after the fatigue test the phenomenon was observed in 77% of male and in 13% of female MUs, with the sex difference possibly related to a higher content of IIa myosin and faster MU contraction in male soleus. Decomposition of tetani with sag into trains of separate twitches elicited by successive stimuli revealed higher forces for the initial than subsequent twitches. The newly revealed enhancement of the sag in

describes who and what individuals feel they are. In the vast majority of people sex chromosomes, primary and secondary gender characteristics and gender identity are uniform (cisgender identity). However, the perceived gender may differ from the biological sex. The term transgender is used as an umbrella term, subsuming a myriad of gender identities differing in one form or other from biological sex (5). Gender dysphoria is a state in which a person feels constantly and strongly that they are of other

Sex of juveniles may be identified from the J3 stage by the presence of the cloacal primordium in male juvenile and orientation of the germinal zone of the genital primordium. A tabular key to developmental stages of B. crenati is given. The body grows during molts and within each stage. The body increases rapidly after J3 stage

Risk in New Sexual Relationships: Trajectories of Protection*

How do sex risk and protection change over the course of a relationship? It is often claimed that protection generally declines over the course of relationships. This 3-year longitudinal study examines 412 new sexual relationships described by 126 adult participants and tests this claim. Analyses identify four relationship trajectories: only 15% of new sex relationships show a declining trajectory of protection; another 12% show only a temporary decline. Population average analyses previously

Host heart rate declined briefly immediately after parasitism. Superparasitism resulted in increased parasite mortality. Scramble competition within mosquito larvae for limited host nutrients, coupled with a skewed sex ratio favoring males, is assumed to lead to parasite population decline and subsequently toward host-parasite

Our findings show that testosterone enhancement in pregnancy could have long-lasting effects on oxytocin and arginine-vasopressin levels in the brain of adult animals, but lead to changes in behavioral aspects of coping strategies only in males.

Although sleep plays an important role in mental health, there are still very few studies using validated questionnaires to examine the prevalence of poor sleep among Swedish adolescents. Most previous studies, including those on a large-scale basis that report high rates of sleep disturbance in adolescents, are based on single questions, e.g. those only assessing ‘‘time
