ANOVA, (group)

*F*= 482; df = 4,10;*p*< 0.0001; (section)*F*= 0.45; df = 17,155;*p*= NS; (monkey)*F*= 0.59; df = 10,155;*p*= NS.↵* Groups with same letter are not different (

*p*< 0.05).The density of TH neurons is shown.

ANOVA of TH density showed highly significant differences between the groups but no differences between the sections (

*F*= 0.45; df = 17,155) or monkeys within groups (*F*= 0.59; df = 10,155) and no significant interactions in a two-factor, repeated measures design.*Post hoc*tests (Student; Newman–Keuls) showed that all groups were different from each other, except for the 30 d OVX plus 2 d estrogen treatment and the 10 d OVX without estrogen groups. Groups with the same letter are not different (*p*< 0.05).
