  1. TMR is injected in the right thalamus, and FG is injected into the left PBN. The cell body counts were performed for three rats on the left side. Each figure showing the number of cell bodies of one animal was the average of the three rats (5 sections from each rat). The sections were 20 μm thick. FG, TMR and VGLUT2 mRNA represent all FG-, TMR- and VGLUT2 mRNA-labeled neurons; data are shown as the mean ± standard deviation (SD)
