The present paper describes the effect of capsaicin-induced stressful stimulus on the expression of immediate early genes (IEGs) c-fos, c-jun, junB and junD in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) and the central amygdaloid nucleus (ACe) using in situ hybridization. Stress caused an intense expression of c-fos, c-jun and junB especially in the PVN and ACe and also a clear induction of junD was observed in the PVN. This suggests that the PVN and the ACe are two major targets of stress… CONTINUE READING
