    Sex differences in cerebellar synaptic transmission and sex-specific responses to autism-linked Gabrb3 mutations in mice

    Audrey A Mercer et al.
    Male and female mice differ in basal cerebellar physiology, including the magnitude of synaptic excitation by metabotropic glutamate receptors, kinetics of synaptic inhibition, intrinsic properties, and responses to autism-linked mutations.

    Sex difference in pathology of the ageing gut mediates the greater response of female lifespan to dietary restriction

    Jennifer C Regan et al.
    In the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, stem cell activity ages female guts but not male guts; furthermore, males with feminized guts develop pathologies but gain an increase in lifespan through dietary restriction.

    Sex-specific transcriptomic responses to changes in the nutritional environment

    M Florencia Camus et al.
    Male and female Drosophila share core metabolic responses to different nutritional environments, but show opposing patterns of nutrient-dependent reproductive regulation.

    Sex-dependent effects of in utero cannabinoid exposure on cortical function

    Anissa Bara et al.
    Adult male, but not female, rats showed altered neuronal function, inhibited synaptic plasticity and diminished social behavior following cannabinoid exposure during gestation in a model of cannabis use during pregnancy.

    Conditional deletion of glucocorticoid receptors in rat brain results in sex-specific deficits in fear and coping behaviors

    Jessie R Scheimann et al.
    Development of a conditional glucocorticoid receptor knockdown rat model allows for high resolution anatomical, physiological and behavioral exploration into the role of glucocorticoid receptor signaling in defined cell populations.

    Personality links with lifespan in chimpanzees

    Drew M Altschul et al.
    Among captive chimpanzees, higher agreeableness males and higher openness females survive longer.

    The mother’s risk of premature death after child loss across two centuries

    Unnur A Valdimarsdóttir et al.
    A large-scale, sibling-based analysis of the Icelandic population spanning two centuries demonstrates an increase in maternal mortality rates after child loss on both sides of a major demographic transition.

    Sexually dimorphic neuronal responses to social isolation

    Laura Senst et al.
    Male and female mice react differently to social isolation but not to an acute physical stress.
