Singing in canaries is an androgen-inducible behavior, under the control of an identified motor pathway, which includes several discrete "song nuclei" in the telencephalon. To determine whether the mRNA for the canary androgen receptor (cAR) is expressed in these song control nuclei, we synthesized probes from the recently cloned cAR cDNA and used in situ hybridization to examine spring male canary brain sections. Concentrations of cAR mRNA are detectable in several of the song control nuclei… CONTINUE READING
