Table 2 Top 25 genes with the largest disparity in effect sizes for sex differences in stress versus no-stress conditions. Effect sizes (η 2) for sex differences in stress and no-stress conditions are presented for ventrolateral (vlPFC) and ventromedial (vmPFC) prefrontal cortical regions. F > M signifies genes with greater expression in females compared to males, and M > F signifies the reverse
