Sexual Motivation in the Neonatally Androgen-Treated Female Rat
In most mammalian species used as laboratory animals it is now well established that the psychosexual differentiation is possible to be influenced by exogenous hormone treatment during a critical pre- or postnatal period (Harris and Levine 1962, Barraclough and Gorski 1962, Young et al. 1964). As to sexual behaviour in the female, most investigations have been concerned with the effect of an early hormone treatment on the adult display of the sex-typical mating behaviour. Less is known about the effect on the urge of the adult subject to seek heterosexual contact, i.e. sexual motivation.
