Oxytocin immunoreactivity in the hypothalamus of female hamsters

TLDR
The anatomical data from the present study support the hypothesis that OXT activity in the MPOA-AH and the VMH plays an important role in the regulation of sexual receptivity in hamsters.

OXYTOCIN IMMUNOREACTIVITY IN THE HYPOTHALAMUS OF FEMALE HAMSTERS

TLDR
The anatomical data from the present study support the hypothesis that OXT activity in the MPOA-AH and the VMH plays an important role in the regulation of sexual receptivity in hamsters.

Vasopressin/Serotonin Interactions in the Anterior Hypothalamus Control Aggressive Behavior in Golden Hamsters

TLDR
The present studies examine the neuroanatomical and neurochemical interaction between AVP and 5-HT at the level of the anterior hypothalamus (AH) in the control of offensive aggression in Syrian golden hamsters to suggest that5-HT inhibits fighting, in part, by antagonizing the aggression-promoting action of the AVP system.

Intraspecific aggression in male hamsters is inhibited by intrahypothalamic vasopressin-receptor antagonist

TLDR
The results confirm the earlier work showing that AVP-receptor antagonist reduces intraspecific aggression and suggest that hamsters microinjected into the anterior hypothalamus with an AVP, receptor antagonist also elicit less aggression from conspecifics.

TLDR
Examination of aggression and flank marking in pairs of male hamsters with intact flank glands, and when one or both members of a pair had their flank glands removed found that social status was determined by the level of overt aggression during the initial encounters.

Behavioral and Neurobiological Consequences of Social Subjugation during Puberty in Golden Hamsters

TLDR
The results establish puberty as a developmental period sensitive to environmental stressors and show that changes in the vasopressin and serotonin systems can correlate with behavioral alterations, supporting the role of these two neurotransmitters in the regulation of aggression.

A V1-like receptor mediates vasopressin-induced flank marking behavior in hamster hypothalamus

TLDR
Whether the induction of flank marking by arginine-vasopressin (AVP) within the MPOA-AH is mediated by a receptor that is more similar to the vasopressor (V1) or the antidiurectic (V2) AVP receptor is investigated.

Microinjection of kainic acid into the hypothalamus of golden hamsters prevents vasopressin-dependent flank-marking behavior.

TLDR
The locations of the microinjection sites indicate that the neurons sensitive to AVP and involved in the expression of flank-marking behavior are found in the ventromedial area of the AH-MPOA extending from the caudal border of the suprachiasmatic nucleus to the rostral limit of the supraoptic nucleus.

TLDR
In addition to the supraoptic and paraventricular nucleii, five additional nuclear masses of neurosecretory cells were found, clearly demarcated from surrounding neural tissue and with constant location from animal to animal.
