Neural Substrates of Sexual Motivation and Performance as Revealed by Neural Immediate-Early Gene Expression

Response to Blaustein et al. paper

    You show nicely the effect of the D1 agonist on FOS
expression in PR-containing cells within the VMN.  However,
there doesn't seem to be the same effect within the MPO,
although, as in the VMN, FOS/PR double-labelled cells
were increased by VCS in the MPO.  What is your idea
about the neurotransmitter(s) involved in stimulating
PR cells within the MPO?
