Sex differences in the number of Venus-expressing neurons in the subnuclei of the anterior division of BNST. a The number of Venus-expressing neurons in adult male and female mice. *p < 0.0001 vs. male in the dorsolateral BNST. b The changes in the number of Venus-expressing neurons in the dorsolateral BNST from early postnatal stages to adulthood. Two-way ANOVA indicated the main effect of sex or age on the number of Venus-expressing neurons in the dorsolateral BNST. *p < 0.001 vs. P2 male mice; p < 0.001 vs. P5 male mice; p < 0.0001 vs. P2 female mice; §p < 0.001 vs. P5 female mice; p < 0.01 vs. 3 month-old male mice (the data of adult male mice in b are the same as the dorsolateral data in a. Data are shown as the means ± SEM
