Previous studies indicate that there is an increase in the number of detectable mast cells expressing gonadotropin-releasing hormone-like immunoreactivity (GnRH-ir) in the medial habenular region of the brain in ring doves after a period of 2 hr of courtship. In the present experiment the overall distribution of GnRH-ir mast cells in the brain is described, and the influence of behavioral and endocrine state on brain mast cell distribution and detectable mast cell number is explored.
