ABSTRACT
The chemical composition of the vomeronasal organ (VNO) was investigated by means of in vitro proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) in prepubertal and adult mice of both sexes. Results demonstrate that MRS detects several chemical constituents in the VNO, showing their age- and sex-associated changes in concentration. Preliminary experiments also suggest the ability of MRS to show compositional changes in the VNO after pheromonal stimulation. MRS can serve as a useful technique to investigate vomeronasal chemoreception.
