Afferents to the nucleus accumbens have been studied with the retrograde transport of unconjugated wheatgerm agglutinin as detected by immunohistochemistry using the peroxidase-antiperoxidase method, in order to define precisely afferent topography from the cortex, thalamus, midbrain and amygdala. Cortical afferent topography was extremely precise. The(More)
Photosynthesis maintains aerobic life on Earth, and Joseph Priestly first demonstrated this in his eighteenth-century bell jar experiments using mice and mint plants. In order to demonstrate the fragility of life on Earth, Priestley's experiment was recreated using a human subject placed within a modern-day bell jar. A single male subject was placed within(More)
A method for demonstrating the anterograde and retrograde transport of unconjugated lectins in the CNS is given using the labelled antibody enzyme technique. Successful labelling of a variety of pathways is demonstrated using wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) and concanavalin A (Con A). Exceptionally large numbers of neurones labelled by retrograde transport were(More)
