We investigated the importance of anterior afferents to the medial basal hypothalamus (MBH) on the increases in plasma FSH during the periovulatory period in the 4-day cyclic rat. We served the anterior connections to the MBH either at 1200 h on proestrus (before the time of onset of the normal spontaneous LH surge in plasma and the associated first phase… CONTINUE READING
