Partner preference in male prairie voles
Brandon J. Aragona, M. Pair bond formation has been investigated much less than many other social behaviors, perhaps in part because traditional laboratory mice and rats do not exhibit this behavior. However, pair bonding is common among monogamous animals such as the prairie vole Microtus ochrogaster. In this review, we discuss how the prairie vole has been used as a model system to investigate the neurobiology of pair bonding.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Researchers explore the science behind monogamy

In the decade since the publication of the last edition, the study of reproductive physiology has undergone monumental changes. Chief among these advances are in the areas of stem cell development, signaling pathways, the role of inflammation in the regulatory processes in the various tissues, and the integration of new animal models which have led to a greater understanding of human disease.
The new edition synthesizes all of this new information at the molecular, cellular, and organismal levels of organization and present modern physiology a more understandable and comparative context. Tony M. Plant studied for his PhD with Dr. Richard P. Michael in London and completed his postdoctoral training with Dr. Ernst Knobil in Pittsburgh in Since then, his research has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health NIH to study non-human primate models in order to better understand human reproduction.
Plant has been particularly interested in the neurobiology of puberty onset, the neuroendocrine control of the menstrual cycle and testis, the endocrine control of spermatogenesis and, most recently, in the cell and molecular biology underlying spermatogonial differentiation. From until he served as Director of a multi-investigator, NIH-funded Center to study the physiology of reproduction, and he served as President of the International Neuroendocrine Federation INF from Anthony J.
His doctoral work, conducted under the direction of Dr. Rees Midgley, Jr. Following the completion of postdoctoral work under the direction of Drs. Zeleznik joined the Department of Physiology at the University of Pittsburgh in , where he began a systematic investigation on the physiological and cellular control mechanisms that govern the menstrual cycle in higher primates.

Research supports a modulatory role for arginine vasopressin AVP in the expression of socially motivated behaviors in mammals. The acute effects of AVP administration are demonstrably pro-social across species, providing the justification for an ever-increasing measure of clinical interest over the last decade. Combining these results with non-invasive intranasal delivery results in an attractive system for offering intranasal AVP IN-AVP as a therapeutic for the social impairments of children with autism spectrum disorder. We found increases in fecal boli production during open field and novel object recognition testing for the medium dose in both males and females. Medium-dose females also had significantly more play bouts than control when exposed to novel conspecifics during the juvenile period.
Over the last several decades there has been an emergence of cross-species consensus with regards to the broad behavioral domains that the vasopressin system influences. However, there are nuanced species- and sex-differences in the functions of this system, as well as evidence for cross-talk between this system and the oxytocin system. For this Research Topic, reviews and research articles from investigators across the field were solicited, with the goal to highlight some of the complexity and diversity within this system. This collection challenges researchers to broaden their understanding of this system as well as identifies areas in which additional research is needed.
Electronic address: mohamed. In the socially monogamous prairie voles Microtus ochrogaster , the development of a social bonding is indicated by the formation of partner preference, which involves a variety of environmental and neurochemical factors and brain structures. In a most recent study in female prairie voles, we found that treatment with the histone deacetylase inhibitor trichostatin A TSA facilitates the formation of partner preference through up-regulation of oxytocin receptor OTR and vasopressin V1a receptor V1aR genes expression in the nucleus accumbens NAcc. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that TSA treatment also facilitates partner preference formation and alters OTR and V1aR genes expression in the NAcc in male prairie voles.

DOI: Prairie voles Microtus ochrogaster exhibit a monogamous mating system characterized by long-term pair bonds between mates. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of cohabitation time and sexual experience on the development of pair bond formation in female prairie voles.

Он быстро подошел к ним и остановился в нескольких сантиметрах от дрожащего Чатрукьяна. - Вы что-то сказали. - Сэр, - задыхаясь проговорил Чатрукьян. - ТРАНСТЕКСТ вышел из строя. - Коммандер, - вмешалась Сьюзан, - я хотела бы поговорить… Стратмор жестом заставил ее замолчать.
Старик не мог даже пошевелиться. Он почувствовал неимоверный жар, бегущий вверх по руке. Нестерпимая боль пронзила плечо, сдавила грудь и, подобно миллиону осколков, вонзилась в мозг.
- Если только вы с женой не захотите сохранить этот фильм для своей частной коллекции. - Делай свою распечатку и выметайся! - зарычал. - Si, senor, - засмеявшись, ответила Мидж с подчеркнутым пуэрто-риканским акцентом и, подмигнув Бринкерхоффу, направилась к двойной двери директорского кабинета. Личный кабинет Лиланда Фонтейна ничем не походил на остальные помещения дирекции.
- К вашему сведению, ваш ТРАНСТЕКСТ перегрелся. - Что ты говоришь? - засмеялся Стратмор.
Но вам ее не найти. Севилья - город большой и очень обманчивый. - Я постараюсь. - Вопрос национальной безопасности… - Если вам не повезет, - сказала Росио, бросив взгляд на пухлый конверт, выпирающий в кармане Беккера, - пожалуйста, заходите.
Да в шифровалке темно как в аду, черт тебя дери. - Может быть, Стратмор решил посмотреть на звезды. - Джабба, мне не до шуток. - Ну хорошо, - сказал он, приподнимаясь на локтях. - Может быть, у них закоротило генератор.
Как только освобожусь, загляну в шифровалку и… - А что с аварийным питанием.
Из темноты раздался протяжный вопль, и тут же, словно из-под земли, выросла громадная фигура, эдакий грузовик, несущийся на полной скорости с выключенными фарами. Секундой позже произошло столкновение, и Стратмор, сбитый с ног, кубарем покатился по кафельному полу шифровалки. Это был Хейл, примчавшийся на звук пейджера.
