If a male fetus does not get the appropriate pre-birth hormone treatment, his brain is likely to remain more typically female; if a female fetus gets exposed to a male-pattern hormonal sequence, she is likely to be more typically masculine. (Carter, Rita, Ed. Mapping the Mind. CA: University of California Press, 1998, p 21)

Hormones are mind chemicals that act on the brain and tell the brain to change the body. They have a dual effect: during gestation the hormones control the way the neural networks are laid out; at puberty they will revisit the brain to switch on the network they earlier created. (Moir, Anne, and David Jessel. Brain Sex. NY: Carol Publishing Group, 1989, 1991, pp 38, 68-70)
