Social rank‐dependent expression of arginine vasotocin in distinct preoptic regions in male Oryzias latipes
Abstract:This study examined arginine vasotocin (AVT) expression in the brains of dominant and subordinate male medaka Oryzias latipes after short‐ and long‐term competition. High AVT expression in distinct preoptic regions was found in dominants and subordinates within minutes of encountering each other. During long‐term competition, AVT expression remained high in dominants but not in subordinates.
