1. Physiol Behav. Mar;12(3) Prolongation of pheromonal emission in the maternal rat. Moltz H, Leidahl L, Rowland D. PMID: Cited by: In the rat, a new olfactory-based association emerges between mother and young at about 14 days postpartum. The mother begins to excrete a pheromone in her feces that strongly attracts the by: Abstract. One critical aspect of the maternal period in rats (Rattus norvegicus) is the fine synchrony which characterizes the interactions between the mother and her young for the duration of the nurtural is the close timing of the physiological and behavioral responses of the mother with the continually changing behavioral, physiological, and physical characteristics of her Cited by:   BEHAV 28(4), We tested the hypothesis that the concentration of prolactln in the liver of the lactating female rat is critically related to her release of the maternal pheromone. The data supported this hypothesis and enabled us to provide an account, more complete than before, of the physiological events that lead to pheromonal emission.

  Induction of the maternal pheromone by cholie acid in the virgin rat. PHYSIOL. BEHAV. 25(1) , Based on the hypothesis that an elevation in the synthesis of cholic acid underlies emission of the maternal pheromone in the rat, we augmented, through dietary supplement, the biliary level of cholic acid in nulliparous females.   PHYSIOL. BEHAV. 14(4) , - Nulliparous female rats that displayed maternal behavior when kept in the presence of young emitted the maternal pheromone at the time their foster young reached 16 days of age and ceased to emit the pheromone when these same young reached about 33 days of age. Abstract. Licking the neonate’s anogenital region is a maternal behavior seen in most rodents. This behavior, termed maternal anogenital licking (MAGL), was described for domestic Norway “laboratory” rats by Rosenblatt and Lehrman () and was also analyzed by Charton et al., ().   The rat population is an ongoing problem due, in large part, to the fact that they're really good at one thing -- making more rats. But through a bit of biological jujitsu, or using the opponent's force against itself, researchers have developed an application that uses sex pheromones that can greatly help in the capture of these nasty rodents.

Physiol Behav, 13(3), 01 Sep Cited by: 80 articles. However, body odors, termed alarm pheromones that are detected by vomeronasal organ and emitted by rats in stressful situations, do not initiate emission of 22 kHz USVs although they increase rat.
