  • There is evidence that the central oxytocin system is activated and undergoes reorganization before parturition. The present study was designed to determine the effects of central oxytocin receptor blockade during late gestation on parturition, pup growth, and oxytocin release during suckling. Female Sprague‐Dawley rats were implanted on gestation day 12–14 with Alzet® osmotic minipumps containing an oxytocin receptor antagonist (d(CH2)5, Tyr (Me)2, Orn8–vasotocin; OT‐X) or artificial… CONTINUE READING
