This chapter provides a conceptual and methodological overview of relevant issues in sex differences/sexual differentiation research, and provides guidance to investigators studying the role of sex and/or gonadal steroids in a variety of physiological or behavioral functions in experimental animals and man. Topics discussed include the difference between sex and gender, testing organizational effects of gonadal steroids, testing activational effects of gonadal hormones, conditions that can affect the endocrinology of the estrous cycle, and testing sex-specific effects of sex chromosome genes.

Keywords:   sex differences, sexual differentiation, gender, gonadal steroids, gonadal hormones, estrous cycle, sex chromosome
