Seasonally breeding animals undergo numerous physiological changes in response to changes in the length of the photoperiod. In most warm-weather breeding rodents, these changes result in reproductive quiescence during short photoperiods. It has been hypothesized that this change is mediated by changes in the activity of gonadotropin-releasing (GnRH) hormone neurons of the hypothalamus. This study was designed to test whether there are changes in the releasable pool of GnRH in the hypothalamus… CONTINUE READING
