Chen W, Shields J, Huang W, King JA. Female fear: influence of estrus cycle on behavioral response and neuronal activation. Behav Brain Res. 2009 Jul 19;201(1):8-13. doi: 10.1016/j.bbr.2009.01.019. Epub 2009 Jan 23.

Predator odor (TMT)-elicited brain activation maps (2D) of positive BOLD signal response across the rat estrus cycle. Each subject was registered or aligned to a fully segmented rat brain atlas using MIVA (Medical Image Visualization and Analysis). Activated voxels (based on a t-test, thresholded at p < 0.05) are overlaid onto the corresponding segmented atlas (2D).
