The presence or absence of testosterone during the fetal brain development determines organizational sex-related changes in brain structures and functions (Humm, n.d.). Functional or structural sex differences can be found in hippocampal structures, which may help explain differences in the strategies that male and female use to solve spatial navigation problems (McEwen, 2002); the limbic system, rich ...

What is the difference between organizing effects and activating effects of hormones?Do hormones have the same organizing effects in males and females? Why or why not?

Activating (or activational) effects of sex hormones: When sex hormones, usually after birth, activate behavioral patterns or tendencies that were laid down earlier (sometimes prenatally) in the development of the nervous system.
