FIGURE 6.10

Mean (± SEM) total terminal field volumes of the GSP, CT, and IX nerves and corresponding overlap (e.g., GSP-CT) in the NST of control (solid bars) and sodium-restricted (open bars) rats. In restricted rats, the CT and IX fields are larger than those of controls. This expansion results in corresponding increases in the overlap among terminal fields. GSP field size does not change. Asterisks indicate p < 0.05. (From May, O. L., and Hill, D. L., J. Comp. Neurol., 497, 658, 2006, with permission.)
