Sexual behavior in female rats depends on the action of estradiol on estrogen receptors (ERs) found in particular brain regions. While hormonal regulation of female sexual behavior requires ER , the possible functions of ER remain to be clarified. Mating stimulation has several behavioral and physiological consequences and induces Fos expression in many brain areas involved in the regulation of reproductive behavior and physiology. In addition, some cells in which mating induces Fos expression… CONTINUE READING
