Schematic illustration of rat forebrain regions analyzed for NGFI-B mRNA expression (A). These levels correspond to bregma +1.20 and +2.20 of the Paxinos and Watson Atlas. Specific brain areas sampled for mRNA analysis are shown in rectangular boxes. (B) Representative autoradiograms of the same coronal section, at different magnification, depicting level of expression for NGFI-B mRNA in the nucleus accumbens of vehicle-treated Wistar rat. These photos were taken from autoradiogram of 30-μm coronal sections hybridized with 35S NGFI-B riboprobe through corresponding sections of the nucleus accumbens. Cingular cortex (Cg), shell (Sh), and core (Co) of the accumbens, medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC), dorsolateral (DL) and dorsomedian (DM) striatum, CPu caudate-putamen.
