Abstract. Rationale: We reported previously that bilateral injection of a corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF)-receptor antagonist, D-Phe CRF12–41, into the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) blocks the reinstatement of cocaine seeking induced by footshock, whereas the injection of CRF into the same region induces reinstatement. One source of CRF in the BNST arises from a CRF-containing projection originating in the central nucleus of the amygdala (CeA). Objective: To determine whether… Expand
