"Neuronal signature of monogamous reunion in prairie voles"

Prairie voles, unlike laboratory mice and rats, form life-long pair bonds with their mating partner.  We used in vivo Ca2+ imaging to identify a subset of partner-approach neurons and found that the number of these neurons increase following pair bond formation. These neurons may represent a neuronal substrate for pair-bond directed motivation.
