Many avian species in temperate zones respond to long photoperiods by showing recrudescence of gonads. Compelling evidence show that non-retinal, non-pineal photoreceptors exist in the avian brain. Within the ventral forebrain are specialized neurons that respond to light found in the medial portion of a circumventricular organ called the lateral septal organ (LSO). The objective of this study was to examine whether the integrity of the LSO was critical for rapid gonadal development in young… CONTINUE READING
