    PDF-1 neuropeptide signaling regulates sexually dimorphic gene expression in shared sensory neurons of C. elegans

    Zoë A Hilbert, Dennis H Kim
    Sex-specific neuropeptide signaling in the shared sensory nervous system regulates sexually dimorphic gene expression and male-specific behavior in C. elegans.

    Sexual dimorphism in striatal dopaminergic responses promotes monogamy in social songbirds

    Kirill Tokarev et al.
    Co-evolution of sexually dimorphic reinforcement systems for song can explain the coexistence of the seemingly contradictory traits of gregariousness and monogamy in social songbirds.

    Sexually dimorphic control of gene expression in sensory neurons regulates decision-making behavior in C. elegans

    Zoë A Hilbert, Dennis H Kim
    A sexually dimorphic transcriptional switch in sensory neurons integrates information about microbial environment and nutritional state to regulate exploratory behavior in C. elegans..

    Sex-determining genes distinctly regulate courtship capability and target preference via sexually dimorphic neurons

    Kenichi Ishii et al.
    Sex-specific characteristics of the fruit fly courtship behavior are not specified by a single binary switch, but as a combination of traits that are modularly specified by separable genetic switches.

    Timing mechanism of sexually dimorphic nervous system differentiation

    Laura Pereira et al.
    The timing of sexual differentiation in the brain of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is controlled by a phylogenetically conserved pathway of gene regulatory factors.

    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.

    Layered roles of fruitless isoforms in specification and function of male aggression-promoting neurons in Drosophila

    Margot Wohl et al.
    Male-type aggressive and courtship behaviors of the fruit flies are differentially specified by two sex-determining genes, providing a substrate for the evolution to sculpt these two behaviors independently.

    Rapid sex-specific adaptation to high temperature in Drosophila

    Sheng-Kai Hsu et al.
    Within 100 generations after an environmental shift in an evolution experiment, rapid sex-specific adaptation occurred, which is potentially facilitated by selection on standing variation in sex-specific genetic architecture.

    Sexual Differentiation: A matter of timing

    Michael W Perry, Claude Desplan
    A genetic pathway involved in development works together with the sex-determination pathway to control the timing of sexually dimorphic neural development in C. elegans.

    Neuropeptide B mediates female sexual receptivity in medaka fish, acting in a female-specific but reversible manner

    Towako Hiraki-Kajiyama et al.
    In the brain of medaka fish, neuropeptide B acts directly downstream of estrogen in a female-specific but reversible manner to mediate female receptivity to male courtship.
