Abstract:

The present study was conducted to identify sexually dimorphic regions in the chicken hypothalamus. Brain samples of apparently healthy chicken of either sex of 6-7 weeks was processed and consecutively stained by Hematoxylin and Eosin, Cresyl Violet and Toluidine Blue. The length and breadth of selected nuclei (preoptic nucleus, periventricular preoptic nucleus, medial suprachiasmatic nucleus and lateral hypothalamic nucleus) was calculated by Leica Qwin Images Analyser software in Leica DM 2000 Microscope. The study suggested that preoptic and medial suprachiasmatic nuclei were significantly (P< 0.01) larger in males than females and also demonstrated that in Nissl stained sections the Preoptic nucleus appeared longer and stained more intensely in males than in females.
