In this study, we analyzed the effects of daily light/dark (LD) conditions on depression and other symptoms, and also analyzed the mixed effects of LD conditions and corticosterone treatment. Male adult C57BL/6 mice were treated with corticosterone in a normal LD cycle of 12 hours light and 12 hours dark (LD12 : 12), short day conditions of 6 hours light and 18 hours dark (LD6 : 18), or long day conditions of 21 hours light and 3 hours dark (LD21 : 3). The activity rhythms of mice in aberrant LD conditions were entrained within 2 weeks. After 6 weeks of exposure, several behavioral tests were conducted. Corticosterone indu...

Suppression of reproductive functions in stallions can be of interest for population control in feral horses, for prevention of sexual or aggressive behavior and to eliminate equine arteritis virus in stallions with virus persistence. One approach to suppress reproductive activity is the downregulation of GnRH receptors by continuous exposure to exogenous GnRH agonists such as deslorelin. Deslorelin implants have been developed for long-term depression of fertility and sexual behaviour in male dogs.
