    Psychoneuroendocrinology 38:808-17. 2013
    ..Furthermore, literature on the distinct roles of the SFA and BLA in fear processing show that increased activation of these subregions of the amygdala is consistent with a fear reducing effect of testosterone...

    Front Neuroendocrinol 33:17-35. 2012
    ..Finally, we propose a theoretical model that synthesizes detailed knowledge of the neuroendocrinology of social-emotional behavior in animals with the recently gained data from humans described in our review...

    Peter A Bos
    Utrecht University, Department of Experimental Psychology, Heidelberglaan 2, 3584 CS Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Psychoneuroendocrinology 35:114-21. 2010
    ..Furthermore, the data also suggest that exogenous testosterone, by itself or by way of its metabolite estradiol, in our group of young women acted on this thalamocinculate circuit to, provisionally, upregulate parental care...

    Estrella R Montoya
    Department of Experimental Psychology, Utrecht University, 3584 CS Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Psychoneuroendocrinology 38:1362-9. 2013
    ..Our findings suggest that early neurodevelopmental effects of sex steroids play a crucial role in the activational effects of hormones on moral reasoning later in life...

    Department of Psychology, Utrecht University, 3584 CS, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:9991-5. 2010

    Dennis Hofman
    Experimental Psychology, Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Proc Biol Sci 279:3535-9. 2012
