During the non-breeding season, anestrous ewes do not experience ovarian cycles but exposure to a ram or its odor results in the activation of the luteinizing hormone secretion leading to ovulation. The aim of our work was to identify the neural pathways involved in this phenomenon. Using Fos immunocytochemistry, we examined the brain areas activated by the male or its fleece, in comparison with ewes exposed to the female fleece or the testing room (control group). In comparison with the… CONTINUE READING
