Behavioral sensitization to cocaine after a brief social stress is accompanied by changes in fos expression in the murine brainstem.

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to determine how c-fos gene expression in brainstem structures after a brief episode of social defeat stress is related to behavioral sensitization to cocaine challenge. Social stress was defined as defeat in a brief confrontation with an aggressive resident mouse and subsequent 20-min exposure to the resident's… (More)
