Abstract

In the majority of neuropsychiatric conditions, marked gender-based differences have been found in the epidemiology,clinical manifestations, and therapy of disease. One possible reason is that sex differences in cerebral morphology, structural and functional connections, render men and women differentially vulnerable to various disease processes. The present review addresses this issue with respect to the functional and structural correlates to some forms of epilepsy.
