Abstract

Using a new method to assess the movement of steroid hormones through the blood-brain barrier, we found evidence that the influx of testosterone was increased in castrated, androgen-treated newts (Taricha granulosa) by intraperitoneal injections of homologous pituitary preparations or arginine-8 vasotocin.
