Sexual dimorphism in the fly brain.

Cachero S, Ostrovsky AD, Yu JY, Dickson BJ, Jefferis GS - Curr. Biol. (2010)

Bottom Line: Initial work found limited evidence for anatomical dimorphism in these fru+ neurons.Our analysis reveals substantial differences in wiring and gross anatomy between male and female fly brains.Reciprocal connection differences in the lateral horn offer a plausible explanation for opposing responses to sex pheromones in male and female flies.
