We have previously shown that electrolytic lesion-induced neurogenesis in the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus (VMN) is significantly correlated with the recovery of courtship behavior in adult male ring doves. Here we revealed that reduction of lesion-induced neurogenesis in VMN impaired the behavioral recovery suggesting therefore a causal link between neurogenesis and behavioral recovery. Our results lend support that adult neurogenesis is latent in repair of injured brain.
