Mapping social behavior-induced brain activation at cellular resolution in the mouse

Imaging method linking brainwide cell activation & behavior shows what it means for mice to have sex in mind. Pictured: The male-female versus handling group comparison (left), the male-male versus handling group comparison (middle), and the binarized male and female versus handling group comparison (right). The visualization of the voxel-based statistical results is overlaid on the RSTP brain. The voxel output is shown with FDR q = 0.05 as a cutoff (red for male-female, green for male-male, and yellow for shared activation). The A/P bregma position is indicated at the bottom left, and the grid for M/L and D/V bregma position is overlaid.
