The mesencephalic trigeminal nucleus is composed of large (35-50 microns) pseudo-unipolar neurons. Closely associated with them are small (< 20 microns) multipolar neurons. An unique peculiarity of the pseudo-unipolar perikarya is that they receive synaptic input from various sources, which sets them apart from the dorsal root and cranial nerves sensory(More)
The data on the glycinergic transmission in the rostral brainstem are both few and controversial. The present report provides evidence for a possible glycinergic transmission in Sprague-Dawley rats, based on observations of immunocytochemical labeling for gephyrin, a 93 kDa protein and a component of the functional glycine receptor. A monoclonal antibody(More)
