Effects of i.c.v. injection of NPS on Fos immunoreactivity in the AON and Pir in the mouse.
A-D photomicrographs show Fos-ir neurons (black) in the AON and Pir in NPS- and vehicle-treated mice, respectively. E, F. Histograms show quantitative analysis of the number of Fos-ir neurons in the AON and Pir following NPS (n = 4 mice) and vehicle (n = 5 mice) i.c.v. injection. Values are means ± SEM. * p<0.001. Data were analyzed by independent student's t-test. Bar = 100 µm. Abbreviations: aci, anterior commissure, intrabulbar part; AON, anterior olfactory nucleus; lo, lateral olfactory tract; Pir, piriform cortex; OV, olfactory ventricle.
