Brain Res 974:1-16. 2003..Males with vomeronasal organs removed and without sexual experience showed increased Fos expression in the medial amygdala when pheromone exposure and GnRH injection were combined, but not in the medial preoptic area...
- Selective enhancement of main olfactory input to the medial amygdala by GnRHCamille Bond Blake

Brain Res 1317:46-59. 2010..c.v.-GnRH combined with MOB stimulation suppressed Fos expression in MePd. This suggests a more selective effect of GnRH on olfactory input in MePd than elsewhere in medial amygdala of VNX males...

Program in Neuroscience and Department of Biological Science, Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL 32306 4340, USA
Physiol Behav 86:314-23. 2005..Thus, modification of the pattern by addition of non-specific activation from mGluR2 agonist is sufficient to disrupt behavior normally driven by conspecific chemosensory stimulation...

Department of Biological Science, Program in Neuroscience, Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL 32306, USA
Chem Senses 28:191-6. 2003..As shown previously, males given GnRH injections and exposed to water also mated normally. HVF exposure prior to a mating test apparently acted to compensate for the lack of vomeronasal input in these males...

Neuroscience 164:1468-76. 2009..Interestingly, VNX also disrupts the avoidance of (an unfamiliar) predator odor, worn cat collar. Here we show that the medial amygdala response to the tested chemical signals is dependent upon an intact vomeronasal organ...

Brain Res 806:104-7. 1998..The CSF samples from stimulated animals averaged about twice the levels of mGnRH-like peptide as those of unstimulated animals. These results demonstrate that nervus terminalis activity can effect in vivo GnRH levels in the brain...
