Modulatory effects of the amygdala on oestrogen \ x = req - \ induced LH secretion in ovariectomized rats

Abstract

An increase in LH secretion was induced in ovariectomized oestradiol benzoate-primed rats 5 h after a second injection of oestradiol benzoate. Lesions stereotaxically placed in the cortical and basomedial amygdala of steroid-primed rats abolished this rise. The results provide evidence for a facilitatory action of the amygdala upon LH release and an involvement of this region of the limbic system in oestrogen-feedback mechanisms.
