We studied the location, distribution, and density of uterine nerve bundles in virgin, full-term pregnant, and early postpartum female rats. In the virgin, a low-magnification analysis of uterine whole-mounts stained for acetylcholinesterase revealed fibers both in close association with blood vessels and coursing freely within muscle or connective tissue(More)
In three breeds of domestic pigeons (fantails, homing pigeons, and strassers) the volumes of fresh, i.e. unfixed tissue of 14 brain structures were determined (telencephalon, diencephalon, nervus opticus, tectum, cerebellum, tegmentum and hyperstriatum accessorium, hyperstriatum ventrale, neostriatum, paleostriatum, hippocampus, septum, regio(More)
Seasonal changes in testicular activity, plasma luteinizing hormone (LH), estradiol (E2), testosterone (T), and 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone (5 alpha-DHT) were related to pair bond formation, nest building, nest defense, and parental behavior in free-living Indian rose-ringed parakeets (Psittacula krameri) in northwest India. Spermatozoa production occurred(More)
The influence of long-distance flight on corticosterone secretion has been examined in trained racing pigeons. Flights of 315-561 min from release sites 115-557 km from the home loft greatly increased the circulating corticosterone concentration in comparison with the levels in nonexercised controls sampled before release or bled in the loft at the times of(More)
A retrograde neuronal tracer (Fast Blue) was injected in the cervical end of the uterine horn of virgin rats. The majority of the retrogradely labeled post-ganglionic sympathetic neurons were found in the sympathetic chain (74%). The superior mesenteric ganglia, inferior mesenteric ganglia and suprarenal ganglia accounted for 22, 3 and < 1%, respectively.(More)
The roles of environmental, dietary, and hormonal factors in the timing of seasonal breeding were assessed in free-living female Indian rose-ringed parakeets, Psittacula krameri, in northwest India (22 degrees 2'N, 73 degrees E). The ovaries and oviducts began to enlarge in January, were fully developed in February, and began to regress in March. During(More)
The topographic distribution of 3H-testosterone and/or its metabolites in brains of Bramblings (Fringilla montifringilla L.) was studied autoradiographically and the intensity of labeling was estimated semi-quantitatively. The highest accumulation of radioactivity was found in nuclei of the preoptic region and the hypothalamus (fig. 2--fig. 5). Cells of the(More)
1. By counting the axons per micron 2 on electronmicrographs of cross-sectioned olfactory nerves and multiplying this number by the area of the cross-sectioned nerves, the number of olfactory receptors was determined in 4 breeds of domestic pigeons including homing pigeons. 2. The total number of olfactory receptors varied between 3.0 and 7.4 . 10(6). It(More)
With an indirect immunofluorescence technique and an antiserum raised against synthetic LHRH, immunofluorescent granules were observed in fine radially oriented fibres in the palisade layer of the zoma externa in both the anterior and the posterior divisions of the median eminence in the greenfinch. There was no specific immunofluorescence in the tractus(More)
