The hypothesis that serotonin (5-HT) and dopamine stimulate prolactin (PRL) release, either directly from the pituitary gland or by acting through Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide (VIP), was investigated by assessing the role of hypothalamic dopamine and 5-HT in the control of broodiness and PRL release in Cantonese native chicken breed called the Yuehuang hen. A second objective was to assess the involvement of hypothalamic VIP in the control of broodiness and PRL release by using dopamine and… CONTINUE READING
