Neural androgen receptors and scent marking of male gerbils: modulation by females.

The involvement of brain cytosolic androgen receptors in the female-induced increase in scent-marking behavior of male Mongolian gerbils was studied. Scent-marking activities and serum testosterone concentrations were measured in low-marking control males and in males with increased scent-marking activities, stimulated by the presence of conspecific females… CONTINUE READING
