This chapter presents an autobiography of Marian Cleeves Diamond. Diamond's laboratory has three major scientific contributions: One, the structural components of the cerebral cortex can be altered by either enriched or impoverished environments at any age, from prenatal to extremely old age. Two, the structural arrangement of the male and female cortices is significantly different and can be altered in the absence of sex steroid hormones. Three, the dorsal lateral frontal cerebral cortex is bilaterally deficient in the immune deficient mouse and can be reversed with thymic transplants. Her early years, career, and achievements are discussed.

Keywords:   sex steroid hormones, mouse, thymic transplants, cerebral cortex, sex steroid hormones
