Investigation of the rapid suppression of male courtship clasping behavior by corticosterone in roughskin newts (Taricha granulosa) has led to the identification of a specific neuronal membrane receptor for this stress steroid. This paper describes studies of the neurophysiological effects of the rapid, membrane receptor mediated action of corticosterone on neurons that are involved in the control of clasping. In freely behaving newts, medullary neurons, including reticulospinal neurons… CONTINUE READING
