  • Estrogen can act on the brain to regulate various biological functions and behavior. In attempts to elucidate the estrogen action, the rodent female reproductive behavior, lordosis, was used as a model. Lordosis is an estrogen-dependent reflexive behavior and, hence, is mediated by discrete neural pathways that are modulated by estrogen. Therefore, a strategy of mapping the pathways, both neural and biochemical, and examining them for estrogen effect was used to localize and subsequently… CONTINUE READING
