Mating behaviour in the male hamster requires chemosensory and hormonal cues, and copulation is abolished if either signal is interrupted. In addition, the integration of chemosensory stimuli with steroid signals is essential for mating. In castrated male hamsters, implantation ofa testosterone-filled cannula in the preoptic area stimulates mating behaviour. However, removal of the ipsilateral olfactory bulb prevents steroid facilitation of sexual activity. The present studies determined if the… CONTINUE READING
