The present paper deals with a detailed analysis of cortical projections from the magnocellular basal nucleus (MBN) and horizontal limb of the diagonal band of Broca (HDB) in the rat. The MBN and HDB were injected iontophoretically with the anterograde tracer Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin (PHA-L). After immunocytochemical visualization of labeled(More)
The detailed patterns of afferentation to the ammon's horn and dentate gyrus of the hippocampus in the rat were investigated employing the anterograde tracer Phaseolus vulgaris leuco-agglutinin (PHA-L) after punctate iontophoretic injections in the medial septum (MS) and vertical limb of the diagonal band of Broca (VDB). The topographically ordered(More)
Male Wistar rats were trained to discriminate the interoceptive effects of 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-OMe-DMT; 1.25 mg/kg, IP) from saline in a two-lever operant chamber. Following discrimination learning, the following drugs (with ED50 dose in mg/kg IP) dose-dependently generalized: lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD, 0.04),(More)
The autoradiographic distributions of receptors with high affinity for [3H]oxotremorine-M (the M2 receptor) and [3H]pirenzepine (the M1 receptor) were studied in the rat brain. M1 receptors were seen in highest density only in telencephalic structures: cerebral cortex (layers I-II), hippocampus, dentate gyrus, medial and basolateral amygdala, nucleus(More)
The pattern and distribution of the cortical projections from intermediate parts of the cholinergic basal magnocellular nucleus were studied by anterogradely transported Phaseolus vulgaris-leucoagglutinin. This immunocytochemical tracing technique reveals the detailed morphology and distribution of efferents from this intermediate area in the nucleus(More)
Animals can be trained to discriminate the presence of pentylenetetrazol, and this discrimination has previously been proposed as an animal bioassay for anxiogenicity. In rats made dependent on diazepam, pentylenetetrazol-like stimuli occurred during spontaneous or precipitated (with RO 15-1788) withdrawal; these stimuli were blocked by pentobarbital. These(More)
TVX Q 7821 is active in several behavioral models of anxiety in animals and has a high selective affinity for brain serotonin 5-HT1A receptors in binding assays. In order to determine if interaction with 5-HT1A receptors is important for some of the behavioral effects of this compound, 11 rats were trained to reliably discriminate the interoceptive stimuli(More)
This experiment tested whether benzodiazepine withdrawal could be detected in an animal model of anxiety. Rats were trained in operant chambers using food reward to press one lever after pentylenetetrazol (PTZ), 20 mg/kg, injection and the other lever after saline injection. Previously, the PTZ cue has been shown to be simulated by anxiogenic drugs and(More)
Septal and entorhinal projections to the hippocampus show a considerable overlap in their target structures in the molecular layer of the dentate gyrus (DG) and stratum lacunosum-moleculare of the cornu ammonis (CA). Employing anterograde tracing methods, it was investigated in which way the morphological pattern of the septohippocampal projections were(More)
