Oxytocin was administered intracerebroventricularly to ovariectomized female rats and its effect on lordosis was examined. In Experiment 1a, oxytocin (0.17 mU in 4 microliters saline) failed to facilitate lordosis behaviour in animals primed acutely with 10 micrograms estradiol benzoate (EB) and 300 micrograms progesterone (P). In Experiment 1b, however,(More)
beta-endorphin was administered intracerebroventricularly into the lateral and third ventricles of ovariectomized, oestrogen- and progesterone-primed rats, and its effect on lordosis and ear-wiggling was assessed. A dose of 2 micrograms beta-endorphin facilitated lordosis when infused into the lateral ventricle, but inhibited lordosis when infused into the(More)
The lordosis duration of the female golden hamster (Mesocricetus auratus) in response to novel and familiar mating partners was examined. In Experiment 1, females mated to the point of sexual satiation with one male hamster, and following its removal, showed renewed receptivity in response to the introduction of a second male. Upon sexual satiation with the(More)
