Effects of acute stress on the patterns of LH secretion in the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus).

Abstract

Stressful stimuli associated with aggressive encounters and low social rank may affect female fertility in a variety of mammalian species. In these experiments we examined the effects of aggressive encounters and physical restraint in a primate chair on the patterns of LH secretion in ovariectomized, oestrogen-primed female marmosets. Receipt of aggression… (More)
