The distribution and morphological characteristics of monoamine (MA)-containing neuronal somata in the brain stem of kittens and of adult cats were studied by means of the Falck-Hillarp histofluorescence method. This investigation has shown, among other things, that in the midbrain of the cat the catecholamine (CA) perikarya are chiefly confined to the pars(More)
Acknowledgements First and foremost I need to thank my advisor Peter Schiller for having made this all possible. I am deeply indebted to him for having shared his wisdom and experience with me over the years and remain inspired by his energy and commitment. I would also like to thank the other members of my committee: for providing invaluable scientific(More)
Three distinct groups of monoamine (MA)-containing nerve cell bodies have been visualized in the hypothalamus and preoptic area of the cat by means of the Falck-Hillarp fluorescence histochemical technique. First, numerous small-sized catecholamine (CA) type neurons were disclosed within the ventral half of the periventricular area in the supraoptic and(More)
