      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.

      A humanized version of Foxp2 does not affect ultrasonic vocalization in adult mice

      K. Hammerschmidt, C. Schreiweis, C. Minge, S. Pääbo, J. Fischer and W. Enard

      Article first published online: 25 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/gbb.12237

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      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

      P. A. Kabitzke, E. H. Simpson, E. R. Kandel and P. D. Balsam

      Article first published online: 25 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/gbb.12233

      Ultrasonic vocalizations emitted by control pairs were positively correlated with active and reciprocal social behavior but negatively correlated with active social behavior in pairs with a D2R-OE subject mouse.

    4. NPY-Y1 coexpressed with NPY-Y5 receptors modulate anxiety but not mild social stress response in mice

      A. Longo, A. Oberto, P. Mele, L. Mattiello, M. G. Pisu, P. Palanza, M. Serra and C. Eva

      Article first published online: 18 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/gbb.12232

      Conditional inactivation of Y1 receptors in Y5 receptor containing neurons increases anxiety without affecting endocrine stress responses.

    5. Differential effects of central administration of relaxin-3 on food intake and hypothalamic neuropeptides in male and female rats

      J. Calvez, C. Lenglos, C. de Ávila, G. Guèvremont and E. Timofeeva

      Article first published online: 18 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/gbb.12236

      Relaxin-3 produces stronger orexigenic effects and stronger activation of orexin mRNA expression in the lateral hypothalamus in female rats.

    6. A common oxytocin receptor gene (OXTR) polymorphism modulates intranasal oxytocin effects on the neural response to social cooperation in humans

      C. Feng, A. Lori, I. D. Waldman, E. B. Binder, E. Haroon and J. K. Rilling
