A smaller habenula is associated with increasing intensity of sexual selection

The habenula is a small structure in the brain that acts as a relay station for neural information, helping to modulate behaviour in response to variable and unpredictable stimuli. Broadly, it is evolutionarily conserved in structure and connectivity across vertebrates, and is the most prominent bilaterally asymmetric structure in the brain.
