  • Seasonal breeders, such as sheep and hamsters, by virtue of their annual cycles of reproduction, represent valuable models for the study of plasticity in the adult mammalian neuroendocrine brain. A major factor responsible for the occurrence of seasonal reproductive transitions is a striking change in the responsiveness of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons to the inhibitory effects of gonadal steroids. However, the neural circuitry mediating these seasonal changes is still… CONTINUE READING
