In rats of both sexes, mating stimulates neuronal activity in forebrain areas that are also activated by stress. Hypothalamic cells in the arcuate (ARC) and paraventricular (PVN) nuclei synthesize hormones or peptides whose levels are altered by adrenalectomy. In this experiment, we examined whether the mating-induced expression of c-FOS in the forebrain is… CONTINUE READING
