    Does the presence of receptors for androgens in different areas of the brain prove that male and female brains are predisposed to have different brain architectures?

    Or can the environment affect the level of receptors for hormones in the brain?

    Cheers.

    It depends....If the receptors are present prenatally or at birth then it demonstrates that there are innate neurological differences. But there is a lot of evidence showing that the environment can influence the number of receptors e.g. certain drugs change receptors.
