Central expression of the protooncogene c-fos was used to examine areas receiving noxious sensory input from the rat temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Fos-like immunoreactivity (Fos-LI) in the caudal brainstem was visualized 2 hours after unilateral injection of the small-fiber-specific excitant/inflammatory irritant mustard oil into the TMJ region.
