The scientists studied the effect of serotonin on the sexual preferences of male mice and found that mice bred to have brains unreceptive serotonin (a mood-regulating neurotransmitter) lost their previous impulse to mate with females:
When just a male was introduced into the cage, the modified males were far more likely to mount the male and emit a "mating call" normally given off when encountering females than unmodified males were. [...] However, a preference for females could be "restored" by injecting serotonin into the brain.
