Microdialysis sampling was used to measure the release of oxytocin (OXY) and monoamine and amino acid transmitters from the region of the medial preoptic area (MPOA) and the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) during parturition and suckling in sheep. Results showed that OXY and gamma-aminobutyric acid release increased in both the MPOA and BNST during parturition and suckling. Noradrenaline (NA) release increased in both structures during parturition but not during suckling. Dopamine… CONTINUE READING
