    S L Meddle
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol, UK
    J Comp Physiol A 176:79-89. 1995
    ..The evidence supports the view that the neurones being activated are involved in a specific fashion in the avian photoperiodic response...

    A J Douglas
    Division of Biomedical Sciences, University of Edinburgh, George Square, Edinburgh, UK
    J Neuroendocrinol 14:768-77. 2002
    ..Thus, beta-endorphin cells in the arcuate nucleus project to the supraoptic nucleus and increased innervation during pregnancy may explain the enhanced endogenous opioid inhibition of oxytocin neurones...

    J Neuroendocrinol 18:217-26. 2006
    ..Taken together, these results suggest that, in Gambel's white-crowned sparrow, a decrease in GnRH-I secretion is the initial step for the onset of photorefractoriness and not a decrease in GnRH-I biosynthesis...

    Centre for Integrative Physiology, College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH8 9XD, UK
    Eur J Neurosci 25:1599-603. 2007
    ..Thus, responsiveness of the stress axis in lactation is dependent upon the innate level of anxiety of the dam and, as a consequence, her reactiveness to social threat...
