Previous studies have shown that gonadectomy in adult male rats influences the acquisition and performance of spatial and other working memory tasks that depend in part on the medial prefrontal cortex and its dopamine innervation. Stimulated by previous findings that gonadectomy alters dopamine axon density in not only medial but several other prefrontal fields, the present studies asked whether gonadectomy might also broadly impact dopamine-dependent prefrontal functions, and whether these… CONTINUE READING
