Lesions of the medial preoptic-anterior hypothalamic continuum (MPOA-AH) are known to disrupt both maternal behavior and male sexual behavior in the rat. In order to test the hypothesis that the two behaviors involve different neural systems in the MPOA-AH, small bilateral lesions were made in different anterior-posterior locations in the MPOA-AH of maternal-sensitized, testosterone-treated female rats, and the effects of these lesions on maternal and male sexual behaviors were assessed… CONTINUE READING
