The bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) is known to be involved in the mediation of a number of sexually differentiated brain functions in the rat. These include the control of gonadotrophic hormone release  and male copulatory behavior . Recently, it was reported that a particular cell group within the BNST, in the caudal part of the medial division, was 36% larger in the male than in the female guinea pig .
