Abstract
© 2018 Elsevier Ltd Male and female brains exhibit differences in anatomy, neurochemistry and functional connectivity, all of which can influence behaviour. Flexibility through learning is an important aspect of behaviour. Learning enhances survival by allowing animals to modify their behavioural responses to a changing environment based on their previous experiences. However, despite its universality and physiological relevance, learned behaviour has been less well studied than innate behaviour within the context of sexual dimorphism. In this review, we provide a comparative overview of the cellular, molecular and evolutionary mechanisms underlying sex differences in several forms of learning across taxa.
