    Biol Reprod 72:1087-94. 2005
    ..This study supports late gestation as a period of increased sensitivity to environmental insult and demonstrates that multiple factors, including prenatal programming, modulate the specific timing of pubertal events...

    Neuroscience Program, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI 48824 1116, USA
    Horm Behav 52:427-35. 2007
    ..The fact that early puberty was associated with increased eating and anxiety symptoms in both sexes suggests that puberty may influence these symptoms through both biological and psychosocial mechanisms...

    Kalynn M Schulz
    Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Program, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI 48824, USA
    Horm Behav 45:242-9. 2004
    ..These studies demonstrate that gonadal hormones during puberty further masculinize and defeminize neural circuits and behavioral responsiveness to steroid hormones in adulthood...

    Nat Neurosci 11:995-7. 2008
    ..Removing gonadal hormones before puberty eliminates these sex differences, indicating that gonadal steroids direct the addition of new cells during puberty to maintain and accentuate sexual dimorphisms in the adult brain...

    Kalynn M Schulz
    Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Program, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan 48824, USA
    Endocrinology 150:3690-8. 2009
    ..Thus, adolescent maturation of social behavior may involve both steroid-independent and -dependent processes, and adolescence marks the end of a postnatal period of sensitivity to steroid-dependent organization of the brain...

  1. Steroid influences on brain maturation
    JULIA ZEHR; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..A basic understanding of the processes controlling pubertal brain development provides a timely foundation for future studies of self-administered steroids, disease states, or environmental endocrine disrupters. ..
