A body of evidence supports the idea that the mesolimbic dopamine (DA) system modulates the natural increase in responsiveness female rats show toward offspring (biological or foster) at birth. In the absence of the full hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and birth, female rats do not show immediate responsiveness toward foster offspring. Activation(More)
Female rats that are hysterectomized and ovariectomized on day 15 of pregnancy (15HO) and presented with pups 48 h later show maternal behavior after 2 or 3 days of pup exposure. In contrast, if 15HO females are administered (sc) 20 microg/kg of estradiol benzoate (EB) on day 15 of pregnancy after HO, they show near immediate maternal behavior when pups are(More)
Infectious flexor tenosynovitis (FTS) is a serious infection of the hand and wrist that can lead to necrosis and amputation without prompt diagnosis and surgical debridement. Despite the growing use of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) by emergency physicians there is only one reported case of the use of POCUS for the diagnosis of infectious FTS in the(More)
A model of the neural regulation of maternal behavior in rats proposes that the basolateral amygdala (BLA) provides pup-related sensory inputs to the nucleus accumbens-ventral pallidum (NA-VP) circuit and that medial preoptic area activation of the mesolimbic dopamine system potentiates the ability of BLA neurons to stimulate goal-directed maternal(More)
