Gonadal hormones are important mediators of sexual and aggressive behavior in vertebrates. Recent evidence suggests that the peptide hormones arginine vasotocin (AVT) and its mammalian homologue arginine vasopressin (AVP) often critically mediate these gonadal hormone effects on behavior and have direct influences on behavioral variation. Behavioral differences between sexes, across reproductive states, and even among closely related species are correlated with differences in central AVT/AVP… CONTINUE READING
