Social stimuli augment estrogen receptor binding in preoptic area of female prairie voles

Abstract

In female prairie voles ovarian estrogen secretion is stimulated by exposure to males. The present study determined that social stimuli can also enhance the neural response to estrogen. Ovariectomized female voles given a fixed amount of estradiol and exposed to males had higher levels of estrogen receptor binding in cell nuclei in the preoptic area than did females given estrogen and not exposed to males.
