Abstract
Because the neuroendocrine processes controlling both sexual behavior and ovarian function are subject to toxicant insult at several different levels (i.e., brain-pituitary-gonadal axis), it is frequently useful to examine the effect of exposure on the female's behavior. The chapter describes in detail the housing and methods used for evaluating sexual behavior in the female rat and discusses the use of these techniques in toxicology studies.
