    James L Goodson
    Department of Biology, Indiana University Bloomington, IN, USA
    Front Neuroanat 5:13. 2011

    Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA
    Horm Behav 64:103-12. 2013

    Psychoneuroendocrinology 38:465-78. 2013

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:10685-92. 2012

    Horm Behav 55:197-202. 2009
    ..Males who reliably fail to court females ("non-courters") have dramatically fewer VT-ir neurons in the BSTm than do reliable courters, and the VT-ir neurons of non-courters fail to exhibit Fos induction in response to a female stimulus...

    Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA

    Neuropharmacology 58:117-25. 2010

    Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN, USA
    Prog Brain Res 170:3-15. 2008
