Brain lesions in infant female rhesus monkeys: effects on menarche and first ovulation and on diurnal rhythms of prolactin and cortisol.

Abstract

Sexual maturation in female rhesus macaques was studied after surgical isolation of the medial basal hypothalamus [complete hypothalamic disconnection (CHD); n = 4] or after creation of amygdaloid lesions (AMYG; n = 6). In four animals, CHD at 8 months did not affect the age when menarche occurred (30 months) but did result in a significant (P less than 0… (More)
