, Relay of Sensory Information to Circuits Underlying Male, Sexual Behavior: Combined Fos and Tract-tracing Studies.
Coolen reports that odor-induced Fos in the MEApd occurs in cells which do NOT project to the MPN. Yet we know that estrous female odors (both volatile and non-volatile) augment MPN Fos. So how does the information get from the Olfactory bulb (either accessory or main) to the MPN without passing via the MEApd?
