Estrogen produced in the brain is necessary for ovulation in monkeys, according to researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison who have upended the traditional understanding of the hormonal cascade that leads to release of an egg from the ovaries. Their findings may reveal the cause of some undiagnosed infertility problems and point the way to new methods of birth control.
