    Abstract

    Adult male Syrian hamsters were either maintained under long days or induced to revert to a juvenile condition by exposure to short days. Subsequent in vivo labeling of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, using [3H]MK-801 revealed that the specific binding of these receptors in brain regions associated with luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) neurons was photoperiod dependent.
