Quantitative in situ hybridization revealed that the expression of the plasticity-associated gene zif268 was increased in specific regions of the rat frontal cortex and nucleus accumbens following fear memory retrieval. Increased expression of zif268 was observed in neurons in the core of the nucleus accumbens during the retrieval of contextual and discrete cued fear associations. In contrast, zif268 expression was additionally induced in neurons of the nucleus accumbens shell and the anterior… CONTINUE READING
