    Neuroscience 318:143-56. 2016
    ..In combination, these results indicate that interactions with unfamiliar females reduce adult neurogenesis and the effect is stronger for sexual interactions than for social interactions. ..

    Mark D Spritzer
    Department of Biology, Middlebury College, Middlebury, VT 05753, USA
    Horm Behav 63:800-12. 2013
    ..For this experiment, all groups seemed to use a combination of place and cued-response strategies. Overall, the results indicate that the effects of testosterone on spatial strategy preference are dose dependent and task dependent...

    Mark D Spritzer
    Department of Psychology, Neuroscience Program, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada
    Arch Sex Behav 37:19-29. 2008
    ..Our results indicate that androgens improve working memory and may impair reference memory, but the effects of androgens on reference memory seem to be task dependent...

    Mark D Spritzer
    Department of Biology, Middlebury College, Middlebury, VT 05753, USA
    Horm Behav 59:484-96. 2011
    ..Overall, the results indicate that testosterone can have positive activational effects on spatial learning and memory, but the duration of testosterone replacement and the nature of the spatial task modify these effects...

    Department of Biology, Middlebury College, McCardell Bicentennial Hall, Middlebury, VT 05753, USA
    Neuroscience 195:180-90. 2011
    ..This suggests that normal circulating levels of testosterone may buffer against the neurogenesis-impairing effects of isolation, whereas high doses of testosterone do not...
