Adult voles show sexual differences in their behavioral responses to estrogen. To determine whether this sexual dimorphism is related to early androgen exposure as it is in other rodents, female voles were treated neonatally with testosterone. In addition, males were castrated neonatally or treated perinatally with either the antiandrogen, flutamide or with the antiaromatase, ATD. When androgenized females were treated with estrogen in adulthood, they exhibited normal sexual behaviors.
