Sex Differences in Cognitive Function in Rodents

(p.227) Chapter 12 Sex Differences in Cognitive Function in Rodents
Sex Differences in the Brain

Victoria Luine

Oxford University Press

Qualitative sexual dimorphisms in cognition and behavior may afford each sex with the requisite tools that provide an edge for their mutual survival and for the survival of their progeny. This chapter reviews cognitive function in rodents within this context of qualitative and quantitative sex differences in performance. It examines whether these sex differences impact day-to-day functioning, contribute to the successful evolution of a species, and can be accounted for by mechanisms underlying cognitive function.

Keywords:   sex differences, qualitative sexual dimorphism, rodents, cognitive function
