The neurohypophysial peptide arginine vasotocin (AVT) alters the display of several sexually dimorphic behaviors in the bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana). These behaviors include mate calling, release calling, call phonotaxis, and locomotor activity. Populations of AVT-immunoreactive cells are present in six areas of bullfrog brain and fibers are widespread. Neural areas involved in vocalization, in particular, contain AVT cells and fibers. As well, AVT concentrations in a subset of brain areas are… CONTINUE READING
