Adult male rats, intact or bearing complete, anterior, or posterior hypothalamic deafferentations (CHD, AHD, or PHD, respectively) or bilateral medial forebrain bundle (MFB) lesions, were acutely exposed to visual, audiogenic, or thermal stress. Two to 30 min after stress onset, the rats were decapitated, and trunk blood was collected from serum LH, FSH, and testosterone (T) determinations. While basal serum LH levels were found to be normal in all experimental groups, FSH levels were reduced… CONTINUE READING
