Neurons in the ventrolateral division of the hypothalamic ventromedial nucleus (VMNvl) display a remarkable estrogen-dependent functional and structural plasticity, which is likely to be mediated, in part at least, by neuronal afferents. The present study was designed to determine whether the number of synapses per neuron and the size of individual synapses in the VMNvl vary across the estrus cycle and, also, whether they differ between the sexes. To accomplish this, the VMNvl of adult female… CONTINUE READING
