In rats, progesterone (P) facilitates sexual receptivity by interacting with intracellular progestin receptors in the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH). This experiment concerns whether P can also facilitate receptivity in rats by acting extragenomically within the ventral tegmental area (VTA). Ovariectomized rats (n = 10) with bilateral guide cannulas over the VMH and VTA were primed with 2 microg subcutaneous estradiol benzoate 44 hr prior to testing. After a pretest for sexual receptivity… CONTINUE READING
