Abstract: Social behavior is a classification of various behaviors such as sexual behavior, aggressive behavior, social memory and sociability. These behaviors are under the regulation of the brain, and the sex steroids influence important brain regions that control these behaviors in both humans and other animals. To behave and respond adequately in social situations is crucial for interacting with others in an appropriate way. Several disorders, e.g. autism spectrum disorders (ASD), display deficits in ... more
