    Preliminary observations suggest a sex difference in the shape and surface area of the human corpus callosum. The sexual dimorphism is striking in the splenium, the caudal or posterior portion of the corpus callosum. The female splenium is both more bulbous and larger than the male counterpart. Since peristriate, parietal, and superior temporal fibers course through the splenium, this finding Sexual dimorphism: | | ||| | Female (left) and male (right) |common pheasant|, World Heritage Encyclopedia, the aggregation of the largest online encyclopedias

    Comparative Genetics In mammals, many species exhibit sex-specific phenotypes that differ between males and females. Although attention has been directed to the effects of the X and Y sex chromosomes, we do not understand how sex affects the rest of the genome.

Darwin considered that most sexual dimorphism was due to sexual selection, in which evolutionary forces acted separately on the sexes (Darwin, ).
