The purpose of the present study was to examine the electrophysiological correlates of copulatory behavior in the rat and correlate brain electroencephalographic (EEG) activity with the ultrasonic vocalizations that have been shown to play a major role in the integration of mating behavior. Ultrasonic vocalizations of male rats with chronically implanted hippocampal and cortical electrodes were monitored during mating with a female rat. Hippocampal theta rhythms were significantly correlated… CONTINUE READING
