The expression of c-Fos and NADPH-diaphorase reactivity (NADPH-dr) in the cervical spinal cord was studied in adult male Wistar rats that realized operant reflexes after inhibition of neuronal nitric oxide synthase. Fos-immunoreactive neurons were visualized immunohistochemically in the C6/C7 spinal segments in the control, realized operant movements animals, and/or 7-nitroindazole (7-NI) injected rats. The mean numbers of immunoreactive interneurons and motoneurons (per section) were… CONTINUE READING
