Sexual receptivity in female hamsters potentially lasts for about 16 h. However, vaginal cervical stimulation (VCS) from a male during mating eventually reduces receptivity and can shorten the duration of behavioral estrus. The process by which this change in response to the male takes place is unknown. Recently, detection of the Fos protein has indicated(More)
Detection of the expression of c-fos mRNA or its protein product, Fos, has been used to indicate differences in neuronal response to exogenous stimuli. Factors contributing to differences in Fos expression as a result of various stimuli associated with mating have been extensively studied in the female rat. Less is known about the factors that contribute to(More)
