Widespread expression of Fos protein induced by acute haloperidol administration in the rat brain.

The effect of acute haloperidol administration on Fos protein expression was examined immunohistochemically in discrete regions of the rat brain. Male Wistar rats were injected subcutaneously (s.c.) with 0.1, 0.25, or 1.0 mg/kg of haloperidol. Two h after the injection, the rats were perfused, and the numbers of Fos immunoreactive neurons were counted in 24… CONTINUE READING
