    derived compounds induce sex-specific effects on autonomic nervous system function in humans.

    The physiological

    and psychological effects of 2 human sex-steroid derived compounds, 4.16-androstadien-3-one (AND) and

    l,3,5(10),16-estratetraen-3-ol(EST) were measured in 24 subjects who participated in a within-subjects, double-blind

    experiment. A dissociation was evident in the physiological effects of AND, in that it increased physiological

    arousal in women but decreased it in men
    . EST did not significantly affect physiological arousal in women or

    men. AND is an androgen derivative that is the most prevalent androstene in human male sweat, male axillary hair,

    and on the male axillary skin surface. The authors argue that AND's opposite effects on physiology in men and women

    further implicate this compound in chemical communication between humans. (c) 2003 APA
