Paternal influence on female behavior: the role of Peg3 in exploration, olfaction, and neuroendocrine regulation of maternal behavior of female mice.
Genomic imprinting represents a mechanism through which parent-of-origin effects on offspring development may be mediated. However, investigation of the influence of imprinted genes on behavior hasExpand

The evolution of pheromonal communication
Small-brained rodents have been the principle focus for pheromonal research and have provided comprehensive insights into the chemosensory mechanisms that underpin pheromonal communication and theExpand

C-tactile afferents: Cutaneous mediators of oxytocin release during affiliative tactile interactions?
Low intensity, non-noxious, stimulation of cutaneous somatosensory nerves has been shown to trigger oxytocin release and is associated with increased social motivation, plus reduced physiological andExpand

Sexual experience affects reproductive behavior and preoptic androgen receptors in male mice
Reproductive behavior in male rodents is made up of anticipatory and consummatory elements which are regulated in the brain by sensory systems, reward circuits and hormone signaling. Gonadal steroidsExpand

The Meaning of Weaning: Influence of the Weaning Period on Behavioral Development in Mice
Maternal care during the first week postpartum has long-term consequences for offspring development in rodents. However, mother-infant interactions continue well beyond this period, with severalExpand

Nonapeptide influences on social behaviour: effects of vasotocin and isotocin on shoaling and interaction in zebrafish
Nonapeptides are important regulators of social behaviour across vertebrate taxa. While their role in simple grouping behaviour has been explored in estrildid finches, other taxa are understudied,Expand

Genomic imprinting mediates sexual experience-dependent olfactory learning in male mice
Mammalian imprinted genes are generally thought to have evolved as a result of conflict between parents; however, recent knockout studies suggest that coadaptation between mother and offspring mayExpand

Forebrain activation during social exposure in wild-type guppies
The neural mechanisms regulating social behaviour have received extensive attention in recent years, with much focus on 'complex' forms of sociality. Comparatively little research has addressedExpand

The paternally expressed gene Peg3 regulates sexual experience-dependent preferences for estrous odors.
Sexual experience has marked and long-lasting effects on male behavior in mammals, regulating traits such as the anticipation and display of sexual behavior, aggression, and olfaction. The authorsExpand

Behavioural responses of feral and domestic guppies (Poecilia reticulata) to predators and their cues
Predation is an important factor during adaptation to novel environments, and the feralisation of introduced domestic species often involves responding appropriately to allopatric predators despite aExpand
