Levels of serotonin (5-HT) and metabolite, 5-hydroxyindole-acetic acid (5-HIAA), dopamine and metabolites, dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) and homovanillic acid (HVA), and norepinephrine (NE) were measured in microdissected brain areas at 14.30 and 19.30 h on diestrus and proestrus in rats. Lordosis, sexual behavior, was exhibited only by proestrous females at 19.30 h. The content of monoamines and/or metabolites changed from afternoon to early evening of diestrus in a number of brain… CONTINUE READING
