Cohabitation of sexually nai;ve male and female prairie voles (Microtus ochrogaster) triggers a cascade of physiological changes that result in the formation of stable pair bonds. In the present study we used the expression of c-Fos protein to identify CNS regions activated during initial social contact in heterosexual, male/male and female/female pairs.
