Hypothalamic adrenergic activity precedes the preovulatory luteinizing hormone surge in the rat.

Abstract

A preovulatory surge of luteinizing hormone (LH) is stimulated by an increase in plasma oestrogen (E2) and a proestrous neural signal which occurs during the 'critical period' (CP). Adrenergic activity during the CP in brain areas concerned with LH release and receiving adrenergic nerve terminals, increased in the arcuate nucleus-median eminence area (AN-ME… (More)
