- Sex differences have been found in many homeostatic domains, including the stress response, energy metabolism and fat distribution. In the present thesis, I study the involvement of the female hormone estrogen in the occurrence of these sex-differences, more specifically I focused on the brain-mediated effects of estrogen on the regulation of a number of neuroendocrine responses.
