Sex Differences in the Brain

This chapter discusses the morphological and physiological sex differences in the human brain. Recent progress in neuroimaging technology holds the promise of elucidating the neuroanatomic and neurophysiologic correlates of sex-influenced behavior by offering a direct approach to study the brain non-invasively. The aim is to provide a foundation for understanding the impact of sex on the human brain in the context of aging, be it normal or pathological.

Keywords:   sex differences, human brain, neuroimaging, aging
