<p>Representative photographs showing double-label immunohistochemistry for TH and OXA (NTS, A), CRF and OXA (BNST, B; PVN, D; and CeA, E) and pro-DYN and OXA (NAc, C). Scale bar, 50 µm. Images depict the orexin A innervations (blue-black) of the CRF, pro-DYN and TH neurons (brown) in the extended amygdala, NTS and PVN. Higher magnification images of the boxes areas depicted in each photomicrograph show examples of the areas where OXA axons are opposed to the somata of CRF, TH and pro-DYN cells. Abbreviations: NTS, nucleus of the solitary tract; BNST, bed nucleus of the stria terminalis; NAc, nucleus accumbens; PVN, hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus; CeA, central amygdala; cc, canal central; 3V, third ventricle.</p
