Previous investigations have identified regions of the avian brain that contain immunoreactive vasotocinergic (VT-ir) cell bodies and fibers. These studies exclusively used domesticated species, and the relevance of the findings for free-living birds has not been established. The present study used immunocytochemistry to determine the neuroanatomical distribution of the VT-ir system in the brain of a well-studied male passerine bird (dark-eyed junco, Junco hyemalis) obtained from a natural… CONTINUE READING
