Bayerl, Doris S. ; Hönig, Jennifer N. ; Bosch, Oliver J.



Abstract

The brain neuropeptide arginine-vasopressin (AVP) mediates a wide range of social behaviours via its V1a (V1aR) but also its V1b receptor (V1bR). With respect to maternal behaviour, V1bR are still less investigated, whereas V1aR have been shown repeatedly to trigger maternal behaviour, depending on the brain region. Here, we aimed to study the role of both V1aR and V1bR within the hypothalamic ...
