Bed nucleus of the stria terminalis β1, but not β2-adrenoceptors, are involved with expression of contextual fear conditioning of rats

      Introduction: The bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) seems to be involved in the expression of anxiety-like responses as contextual fear conditioning. Among the numerous neural inputs to the BNST, noradrenergic synaptic terminals are prominent and some evidence suggests an activation of this BNST neurotransmission during aversive situations.
