The ontogeny of vasopressin (VP) gene expression in extrahypothalamic neurons of the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) and medial amygdala (MA) was investigated using in situ hybridization. In both the BNST and MA, VP mRNA-positive cell profiles were only detected a few days after birth. In males, VP mRNA-expressing cell profiles appear in the BNST on day 3 and in the MA on day 5. In contrast, hybridization signals could not be detected in the female brain until day 14 in the BNST and… CONTINUE READING
