Thalamostriatal projections from the ventral anterior nucleus (VA) were mapped by using autoradiographic and horseradish peroxidase techniques in the dog. Injections of tritiated leucine and proline into the lateral, central, and medial parts of VA resulted in anterograde label over the dorsolateral, midlateral, and dorsal parts of the head of the caudate(More)
Retrograde axonal tracing studies were performed in combination with tritiated thymidine cell birthday analyses in order to determine whether or not any hodologicotemporal gradients exist in neuron genesis within the murine locus coeruleus. Following injections of retrograde tracers within the forebrain or cerebellum in mice exposed in utero to the(More)
A double labeling method is described which combines immunocytochemistry for identification of the neurotransmitter serotonin with autoradiographic retrograde axonal tracing using wheat germ agglutinin (WGA), N-[acetyl-3H]. The permanence, sensitivity, and distinctness of the two labels provide a valuable means for analyzing transmitter-identified(More)
Erythropoiesis was evaluated in 37 patients with sickle cell anaemia, 26 of them children under 12 years of age. Mean haemoglobin, haematocrit, reticulocyte, and erythropoietin levels were similar for 11 who were asymptomatic, 11 with infections, and 12 in vaso-occlusive crisis. Mean haemoglobin, haematocrit, and reticulocyte values were significantly lower(More)
