Neural mechanisms of female sexual behavior in the rat; comparison with male ejaculatory control

Dopamine, the medial preoptic area, and male sexual behavior

Do similar neural systems subserve aggressive and sexual behaviour in male rats? Insights from c-Fos and pharmacological studies.

Activation of a Subset of Lumbar Spinothalamic Neurons after Copulatory Behavior in Male But Not Female Rats

It is demonstrated that a specific subpopulation of spinothalamic neurons signals information associated with ejaculation, located in laminas 7 and 10 of the lumbar segments 3 and 4.



Mating‐lnduced FOS‐Like Immunoreactivity in the Rat Forebrain: A Sex Comparison and a Dimorphic Effect of Pelvic Nerve Transection

Following mating there is no sex difference in the brain regions which express c‐fos, but there is a dimorphism in the contribution of afferent information conveyed by the pelvic nerves to the mating‐induced FOS response.

Sex difference in the effect of mating on c-fos expression in luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone neurons of the ferret forebrain.

The results suggest that the sexually dimorphic pattern of LH secretion that occurs in ferrets after mating reflects a selective activation of LHRH neurons in the female forebrain.
