Distinct patterns of Fos immunoreactivity in striatum and hippocampus induced by different kinds of novelty in mice.

In this study the immediate-early gene Fos was used to investigate the response to different novel stimuli in a wide array of brain regions including the hippocampus, the rhinal cortex, the frontal cortex and different components of the striatal complex. Independent groups of CD-1 mice were exposed to three different novelty conditions: (1) novel… CONTINUE READING
