Neurotensin (NT) is a 13 amino acid neuropeptide that is identical in mice and humans and is released from and acts upon a number of social brain regions. Recent work indicates NT neurotransmission may be altered in postpartum females and support the onset of some maternal behaviors. In a recent study, we highlighted how virgin and postpartum brains from mice selected for high offspring protection differ in response to injected NT (0.1 μg) relative to vehicle when examining c-Fos profiles… CONTINUE READING
