Previous work has shown that mating induces the expression of Fos protein within the chemosensory pathways of the male Syrian hamster brain. However, it is not known if this pattern of labeling is specific to mating or the result of social interactions in general. To determine the behavioral specificity of activation within these pathways, Fos immunostaining following mating was compared to that following agonistic behavior. Both mating and agonistic behavior are dependent upon chemosensory… CONTINUE READING
