[Sexual behavior and alpha-2 adrenoreceptors in the neocortex of male rats after castration and testosterone administration].

[Article in Russian]


Castration of male rats inhibited their sexual behaviour and increased the density of the alpha-2 adrenergic receptors in the brain cortex. Treatment of castrated or intact males with testosterone activated their sexual behaviour and decreased the receptor density in the brain cortex. The obtained evidence testify to the involvement of the brain alpha-2 adrenergic receptors in the effect of testosterone on male sexual behaviour.
