Differential expression of SNAP-25 protein isoforms during divergent vesicle fusion events of neural development.
The presynaptic plasma membrane protein SNAP-25 (synaptosome-associated protein of 25 kDa) has been implicated as one of several neural-specific components that direct constitutive fusion mechanismsExpand

Induction and habituation of immediate early gene expression in rat brain by acute and repeated restraint stress
Acute exposure to stress leads to activation of the pituitary-adrenal axis (PA-axis) while repeated exposure to a homotypic stressor generally results in habituation of this response. PreviousExpand

Differential sensitivity of c-Fos expression in hippocampus and other brain regions to moderate and low doses of alcohol
Alcohol consumption in humans is characterized by a wide range of behavioral effects and pathological consequences that suggest several neuroanatomical targets for this drug. To identify theseExpand

Hippocampal-dependent learning and experience-dependent activation of the hippocampus are preferentially disrupted by ethanol
A classical fear conditioning paradigm was used to examine the effect of acute ethanol on the acquisition of context conditioning, a hippocampal-dependent associative task, and tone conditioning, aExpand

The Edinger‐Westphal nucleus: A historical, structural, and functional perspective on a dichotomous terminology
The eponymous term nucleus of Edinger‐Westphal (EW) has come to be used to describe two juxtaposed and somewhat intermingled cell groups of the midbrain that differ dramatically in their connectivityExpand

Alcohol-Induced c-Fos Expression in the Edinger-Westphal Nucleus: Pharmacological and Signal Transduction Mechanisms
Mapping inducible transcription factors has shown that the Edinger-Westphal nucleus is preferentially sensitive to alcohol intoxication. Herein, we characterize the pharmacological and signalExpand

Different Levels of Fos Immunoreactivity After Repeated Handling and Injection Stress in Two Inbred Strains of Mice
Expression of Fos and Fos-related antigens was immunohistochemically analyzed in DBA/2J and C57BL/6J inbred mice in response to acute or repeated handling and injection stress. Both strains showed aExpand

Increasing Histone Acetylation in the Hippocampus-Infralimbic Network Enhances Fear Extinction
BACKGROUND A key finding from recent studies of epigenetic mechanisms of memory is that increasing histone acetylation after a learning experience enhances memory consolidation. This has beenExpand

Post-retrieval disruption of a cocaine conditioned place preference by systemic and intrabasolateral amygdala beta2- and alpha1-adrenergic antagonists.
Previous work has demonstrated post-retrieval impairment in associative learning paradigms, including those mediated by drugs of abuse, using nonspecific beta-adrenergic receptor (beta-AR)Expand

CRF receptors in the nucleus accumbens modulate partner preference in prairie voles
Recent evidence suggests a role for corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) in the regulation of pair bonding in prairie voles. We have previously shown that monogamous and non-monogamous vole speciesExpand
