We observed gliosis with cell death in the rat amygdala 3 and 14 days after myocardial infarction (MI). Cresyl violet-positive neurons had condensed cytoplasm, and Fluoro-Jade B-positive cells were detected in the amygdala 14 days, not 3 days, after MI. Only a few glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP)-immunoreactive astrocytes and ionized calcium-binding adapter molecule 1 (Iba-1)-immunoreactive microglia showed activated form; hypertrophied cytoplasm, and highly ramified and retracted processes of astrocytes and microglia in the amygdala at 3 days after MI, respectively. At 14 days after MI, many astrocytes and most of microglia showed activated forms. These results suggest that MI may induce neuronal death and reactive gliosis in the amygdala.
