Neonatal Testosterone Modulates the Number and Responsivity of Growth Hormone-releasing Hormone (ghrh) Neurons

Abstract

Exposure to sex steroids during the fetal and neonatal periods plays an important role in the organization of the hypothalamus. Since the rate of growth of the pubertal and adult animal is also affected by neonatal sex steroid exposure, we asked the question as to whether this phenomenon is due to an effect of these steroids on those hypothalamic neurons… (More)
