Increased expression of c-fos in the medial preoptic area after mating in male rats: Role of afferent inputs from the medial amygdala and midbrain central tegmental field
A direct main olfactory bulb projection to the ‘vomeronasal’ amygdala in female mice selectively responds to volatile pheromones from males
The presence of a direct MOB‐to‐medial amygdala pathway in mice and other mammals could enable volatile, opposite‐sex pheromones to gain privileged access to diencephalic structures that control mate recognition and reproduction.
Neuroendocrine Regulation of GnRH Release in Induced Ovulators
A complete understanding of the neuroendocrine control of ovulation will only be achieved by comparative studies of several animal model systems in which mating-induced as well as spontaneous, hormonally stimulated activation of GnRH neurons drives the preovulatory LH surge.
Olfactory Sex Discrimination Persists, Whereas the Preference for Urinary Odorants from Estrous Females Disappears in Male Mice after Vomeronasal Organ Removal
The results suggest that the VNO is not required for sex discrimination but instead detects the nonvolatile components of opposite-sex urine that may be used to help prolong contact with individuals that produce these chemosignals.
Vomeronasal neuroepithelium and forebrain Fos responses to male pheromones in male and female mice.
The results suggest that sexually dimorphic central responses to pheromones exist in mice that may begin in the VNO neuroepithelium and suggest that neurons in the central portions of the male's VNO pathway are capable of expressing Fos.

It is shown that transgenic mice expressing R192Q or S218L FHM1 mutations have increased SD frequency and propagation speed; enhanced corticostriatal propagation; and, similar to the human F HM1 phenotype, more severe and prolonged post-SD neurological deficits.

Copulation in Castrated Male Rats following Combined Treatment with Estradiol and Dihydrotestosterone
Castrated male rats injected daily with 2 micrograms of estradiol benzoate (EB) combined with 200 micrograms of dihydrotestosterone propionate (DHTP) displayed masculine mating behavior which was…
