[The effects of sex and neonatal androgenization on neuron
dendroarchitectonics in amygdala posterior cortical nucleus]
[Article in Russian]
[No authors listed]
Sex differences in neuron dendroarchitectonics of the amygdala
posterior cortical nucleus of adult rats were described for the first
time using the Golgi method. Long-axon sparse-branched neurons in male
rats possessed a larger number of primary dendrites, while female rats
had long-axon dense-branched neurons with longer dendrites. Injection
of testosterone propionate at 1250 g to females on day 5 after birth
resulted in a greater number of primary dendrites of long-axon sparse
branched neurons in adults, as compared to that in the control.
Dendrites of long-axon sparse-branched neurons became much longer,
thus enlarging the dendrite area.
