The ability of several stimuli which augment central catecholamine (CA) neuronal activity to reinitiate estrous cycles in old constant estrous (CE) rats suggests CA neuronal function is impaired with advanced age. We examined the effects of age on dopamine (DA) and norepinephrine (NE) levels and turnover rates within microdissected brain regions of previously normally cycling young (3-4 months old) and middle-aged (10 months old) and CE old (20-22 months old) Long Evans 2 weeks after… CONTINUE READING
