Avian studies have played a pivotal role in our appreciation of the importance of brain aromatization, the mechanics of neuroestrogen production, and the roles of neuroestrogens in organization of the vertebrate brain and the activation of diverse behaviors. Studies across bird species have also unveiled complexity in the cellular and subcellular distributions of aromatase in brain as well as the modes of neuroestrogen action. With a focus on studies of both songbirds and nonsongbirds, this chapter reviews many of the advances made toward our understanding of aromatase neurobiology derived from avian studies.
