Since estrogen exerts wide ranging effects within the central nervous system, it is important to investigate the sites and actions of this gonadal steroid hormone at extra-hypothalamic locations. In the present report, the effects of estrogen upon catecholaminergic function within the olfactory bulb were examined. To assess the role of estrogen at this site, ovariectomized mice received either no further hormonal treatment or were treated with estrogen, the anti-estrogen, tamoxifen, or a… CONTINUE READING
