Thalamic processing of vibrissal information in the rat. I. Afferent input to the medial ventral posterior and posterior nuclei
Retrograde tracing with true blue (TB) and diamidino yellow (DY) and anterograde tracing with either wheatgerm agglutinin–conjugated horseradish peroxidase (WGA‐HRP) or Phaseolus vulgarisExpand

Patterning of local intracortical projections within the vibrissae representation of rat primary somatosensory cortex
Anterograde and retrograde tracing with biotinylated dextran amine and Phaseolus vulgaris leukoagglutinin was used to assess projection patterns within the vibrissae representation of the rat'sExpand

Immunocytochemical localization of ACTH perikarya in nucleus tractus solitarius: evidence for a second opiocortin neuronal system
Immunocytochemical localization of ACTH-opiocortin perikarya was demonstrated in the medulla of colchicine-treated rat. Neuronal cell bodies and fibers containing ACTH-immunoreactivity were abundantExpand

Effect of serotonin depletion on vibrissa-related patterns of thalamic afferents in the rat's somatosensory cortex
To investigate the role of 5-HT in the development of the somatosensory cortex, this amine was depleted in newborn (P-0) rats with a single subcutaneous injection of the toxin 5,7-dihydroxytryptamineExpand

Serotonin 1B receptors in the developing somatosensory and visual cortices are located on thalamocortical axons.
Serotonin (5-HT)-immunoreactive axons are densely distributed in the primary visual and somatosensory cortices of rats, mice, and hamsters for the first 2 weeks of life, and a recent study from thisExpand

Effects of 5-HT on thalamocortical synaptic transmission in the developing rat.
1. Recent immunocytochemical and receptor binding data have demonstrated a transient somatotopic patterning of serotonin (5-HT)-immunoreactive fibers in the primary somatosensory cortex of developingExpand

Parvalbumin and calbindin immunocytochemistry reveal functionally distinct cell groups and vibrissa‐related patterns in the trigeminal brainstem complex of the adult rat
Immunocytochemistry for calbindin (CA) and parvalbumin (PA) was combined with retrograde tracing from the thalamus, superior colliculus (SC), and cerebellum to define the ascending projections ofExpand

The formation of a cortical somatotopic map
The primary somatosensory cortex of small rodents is an isomorphic representation of the body surface. Similar representations are characteristic of the subcortical pathways, leading from theExpand

Evidence for prenatal competition among the central arbors of trigeminal primary afferent neurons
Previous studies have shown that damage to vibrissa follicles in newborn rats and mice does not alter the brainstem representations of the remaining vibrissa as demonstrated by staining forExpand

Projection status of calbindin- and parvalbumin-immunoreactive neurons in the superficial layers of the rat's superior colliculus.
Immunocytochemistry and retrograde labeling were used to define the thalamic projections of calbindin- and parvalbumin-containing cells in superficial layers of the rat's superior colliculus (SC).Expand
