    Extensive literature documents that basic differences in genetic, physiological, and environmental experiences between males and females produce phenotypic differences throughout the lifespan in the incidence, risk, and outcome of neuropathological diseases. For a few of the neuropathologies, hormonal differences between men and women are a significant factor.
