Abstract

Male rats put in the presence of a receptive female rat that they can see, hear and smell, but cannot touch, show penile erection episodes. These non‐contact erections occur concomitantly with an increase in nitric oxide production in the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus, as detected by the increase in the NO2– and NO3– concentration in the paraventricular dialysate obtained from these males by in vivo microdialysis.
