The administration of estradiol during a sensitive period of post-pubertal development decreases the free-running circadian period of males but not females, resulting in a permanent sexual dimorphism in the circadian timekeeping mechanism of Octodon degus. These data demonstrate that gonadal hormones can act during adolescent development to permanently alter the circadian system.
