The anatomy of neuropeptide-y-containing neurons in rat brain
The extremely high concentrations and widespread distribution of neuropeptide Y in the central nervous system suggests a number of important physiological roles for this neurotransmitter candidate. Expand
Tonic vasomotor control by the rostral ventrolateral medulla: effect of electrical or chemical stimulation of the area containing C1 adrenaline neurons on arterial pressure, heart rate, and plasma
Neurons within the RVL, most probably C1 adrenaline- synthesizing neurons, exert an excitatory influence on sympathetic vasomotor fibers, the adrenal medulla, and the posterior pituitary, as well as under tonic inhibitory control, in part via GABAergic mechanisms. Expand
Topographic organization of neurons in the acoustic thalamus that project to the amygdala
The aim of the present studies was to determine which areas of the amygdala receive afferents from posterior thalamic structures that, in turn, receiveAfferents (presumably acoustic afferentials) from the inferior colliculus. Expand
Organization of central adrenergic pathways: I. Relationships of ventrolateral medullary projections to the hypothalamus and spinal cord
We studied the organization of projections from the C1 adrenergic and A1 noradrenergic cell groups in the ventrolateral medulla (VLM) to the hypothalamus and the spinal cord by using a combination ofExpand
Topographic organization of convergent projections to the thalamus from the inferior colliculus and spinal cord in the rat
The extent to which afferent projections to the thalamus from the inferior colliculus and spinal cord converge is graded in the caudorostral plane, with the greatest overlap occurring at the level of the rostral third of the MGB. Expand
Projections from the nucleus tractus solitarii to the rostral ventrolateral medulla
Projections from the nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) to autonomic control regions of the ventrolateral medulla, particularly the nucleus reticularis rostroventrolateralis (RVL), which serves as aExpand
Projections to the subcortical forebrain from anatomically defined regions of the medial geniculate body in the rat
WGA‐HRP is used as an anterograde and retrograde axonal marker to define the full range of subcortical efferent projections of the medial geniculate body and identify the cells of origin within the MG of each projection. Expand
A role of insular cortex in cardiovascular function
Respes to electrical and chemical stimulation of the cortex were studied in the anesthetized, paralyzed, and artificially ventilated Sprague‐Dawley rat to determine whether the insular cortex contributes to the regulation of arterial blood pressure. Expand
Rostral ventrolateral medulla: Selective projections to the thoracic autonomic cell column from the region containing C1 adrenaline neurons
Anterograde, retrograde, and combined axonal transport methods were used to describe the descending efferent projections of a region of rostral ventrolateral medullary reticular formation importantExpand
Anatomical substrates of cholinergic‐autonomic regulation in the rat
Previously unknown neuroanatomic substrates of cholinergic ‐ autonomic control were mapped in this study by an immunocytochemical method empolying a monoclonal antiserum against choline acetyltransferase (ChAT), the enzyme synthesizing ACh. Expand
