The C3H/HeH mouse strain has a mutant hypogonadal (hpg) variant, providing an animal model to examine the activational effects of sex hormones because reproductive maturation is arrested at a neonatal stage. Thus in the adult mouse, the circulating concentrations of sex steroids are extremely low. The present study used a series of tests to distinguish sex differences in behaviour: open field, locomotor activity, hyponeophagia, and novel location recognition. The results showed some evidence ...Expand abstract
