    Angiotensin II receptor type 1a (AT1aR) and corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) co-localize in subsets of paraventricular nucleus (PVN) and central amygdala (CeA) neurons. Dense AT1aR and CRF expression is observed in the PVN and CeA of AT1aR-GFP (green fluorescent protein) mice.

    Male mice carrying the ‘humanized’ Foxp2 variant did not differ in structure or composition of their ultrasonic vocalizations from control littermates.

  3. Social behavior in a genetic model of dopamine dysfunction at different neurodevelopmental time points
