Olfactory regulation of maternal behavior in mammals
TLDR
It appears that only the main olfactory system is implicated when individual odor discrimination of the young is required, and neural structures undergo profound changes when exposed to offspring odors at parturition, contributing both to maternal responsiveness to these odors, to their memorization and to effects of long-term maternal experience. Expand
The main and the accessory olfactory systems interact in the control of mate recognition and sexual behavior
TLDR
Recent results showing that both the main and accessory olfactory systems are able to process partially overlapping sets of sexual chemosignals and that both systems support complimentary aspects in mate recognition and in the control of sexual behavior are summarized. Expand
Mapping of Kisspeptin Fibres in the Brain of the Pro‐Oestrous Rat
TLDR
Comparisons of the distribution of kisspeptin neurone fibres in the female rat brain by comparing precisely the immunoreactive pattern obtained with two antibodies suggest that these peptides play a role in different functions. Expand
Mother–Young Relationships in Sheep: A Model for a Multidisciplinary Approach of the Study of Attachment in Mammals
TLDR
Findings support the view that sheep are amongst the most appropriate animal models for the study of maternal and filial attachment in mammals. Expand
Short term treatment with estradiol decreases the rate of newly generated cells in the subventricular zone and main olfactory bulb of adult female mice
TLDR
Results show that a short term treatment with estradiol actually downregulates cell proliferation leading to a decreased number of newborn cells in the OB. Expand
The vomeronasal organ is required for the expression of lordosis behaviour, but not sex discrimination in female mice
TLDR
Results show that the VNO is primarily involved in the detection and processing of non‐volatile odours, and that female mice can use volatile odours detected and processed by the main olfactory system for mate recognition. Expand
Destruction of the main olfactory epithelium reduces female sexual behavior and olfactory investigation in female mice.
TLDR
The results show that the MOE is primarily involved in the detection and processing of odors that are used to localize and identify the sex and endocrine status of conspecifics and contribute to female sexual receptivity in female mice. Expand
Maternal experience influences the establishment of visual/auditory, but not olfactory recognition of the newborn lamb by ewes at parturition.
TLDR
Both types of recognition can be rapidly established after parturition, and maternal experience has a differential effect on the dynamics of these learning processes. Expand
Maternal responsiveness and maternal selectivity in domestic sheep and goats: the two facets of maternal attachment.
TLDR
Data concerning the sensory, physiological, and neurobiological factors involved in the activation of both maternal responsiveness and the establishment of selective nursing indicates that these processes are activated simultaneously by the combined action of two main factors. Expand
Cortical and medial amygdala are both involved in the formation of olfactory offspring memory in sheep
TLDR
Findings show that both nuclei of the amygdala are required for the formation of a lamb olfactory memory and suggest functional interaction between these two nuclei. Expand
