The distribution pattern of immunoreactive beta-endorphin neurons was studied in female guinea pigs that were ovariectomized, and one week later were injected with 25 micrograms estradiol benzoate or oil. The animals (5 from each group) were perfused after 24 hours with 4% paraformaldehyde. The locations of beta-endorphin cells and fibers were determined(More)
The content of GnRH and its precursor peptide were quantified in female rats bearing lesions in the anterior medial preoptic nucleus (AMPO) and the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), and the effects of the lesions on the synthetic activity of the GnRH neurons were evaluated. Electrolytic lesions which induced persistent estrous (PE), or irregular estrous(More)
Cocaine exposure in utero is known to cause a variety of behavioral and motor deficits that may be attributable to alterations in the dopamine neurocircuitry. To ascertain cocaine effects in the fetus, we developed a nonhuman primate model in which pregnant monkeys were administered cocaine from day 20 through day 60 or 70 of gestation.
