The steroid sensitive vasopressin cells of the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BST) and centromedial amygdala (CMA) are involved in numerous behavioural and physiological functions. These cells are known to be greatly influenced by gonadal steroids. Castration reduces and testosterone replacement restores arginine vasopressin (AVP)-immunoreactive (-ir) labelling and AVP mRNA expression in the BST and CMA. Gonadal steroids appear to act directly in AVP-expressing cells within the BST and… CONTINUE READING
