Reproductive history affects the synaptology of the ageing gonadotropin-releasing hormone system in the male rat.

This study is an examination of the density of synaptic input to gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons in young adult and aged retired breeder male rats. In earlier experiments on aged virgin male rats we observed an increase in synaptic input to this specific neuronal population, ascribable in part to synapses containing flattened vesicles… CONTINUE READING
