We hypothesized that c-fos expression in the medial amygdala (Me), the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST), and the medial preoptic area (MPOA) of the male Syrian hamster brain correlated with sexual satiety. To address this hypothesis, males were mated for 4 consecutive days. Experiment 1 determined whether the number of Fos-immunoreactive (Fos-ir) nuclei was equivalent in two groups of males mated to sexual satiety, one group of rested males (9.67 +/- 0.80 ejaculations) and a second… CONTINUE READING
