Electrical stimulation of the vomeronasal organ in male hamsters activated Fos expression in neurons of the chemosensory pathways, as in experiments where animals were stimulated with female chemical stimuli. Fos was also activated in gonadotropin hormone releasing hormone (GnRH, or LHRH) neurons in the rostral medial preoptic region of the brain, a possible substrate for GnRH influence on chemosensory-dependent reproductive behavior.
