Estrogen and progesterone interact in the regulation of various brain functions including mechanisms controlling gonadotropin secretion and female sexual behavior. Various methods have been used to map the regions where these hormones act and where specific receptors can be detected. However, it remains unknown if both steroids act on the same neuron or if there are neural populations responding to either one or the other of these hormones To answer this question, we used various… CONTINUE READING
