  • N is the number of animals indicated in parentheses. T had a strong androgenic effect on seminal vesicle weight and anabolic effect on BC/LA muscle weight (p values < 0.0001). MK-801 treatment did not affect either of these measures, nor was there any statistical interaction of androgen and MK-801 (pvalues > 0.10).
