Cholinergic systems in the rat brain: III. Projections from the pontomesencephalic tegmentum to the thalamus, tectum, basal ganglia, and basal forebrain
The ascending cholinergic projections of the pedunculopontine and dorsolateral tegmental nuclei, referred to collectively as the pontomesencephalotegmental (PMT) cholinergic complex, wereExpand

Cholinergic projections from the basal forebrain to frontal, parietal, temporal, occipital, and cingulate cortices: A combined fluorescent tracer and acetylcholinesterase analysis
The morphologies, intercellular organization, and cortical projection patterns of putative cholinergic neurons in the basal forebrain of the rat were examined by use of fluorescent tracer histologyExpand

Cholinergic systems in the rat brain: IV. descending projections of the pontomesencephalic tegmentum
Descending projections from cholinergic neurons in the pedunculopontine and laterodorsal tegmental nuclei, collectively referred to as the pontomesencephalotegmental (PMT) cholinergic complex, wereExpand

Cholinergic systems in the rat brain: I. Projections to the limbic telencephalon
The cholinergic projections to the limbic telecephalon in the rat were investigated by use of fluorescent tracer histology in combination with choline-O-acetyltransferase (ChAT) immunohistochemistryExpand

Cholinergic projections to the basolateral amygdala: A combined Evans Blue and acetylcholinesterase analysis
The origins and acetylcholinesterase (AChE, EC 3.1.1.7) content of neurons projecting to the AChE-rich basolateral amygdala were studied by infusing Evans Blue (EB), a retrogradely transportedExpand

Cholinergic projections to the substantia nigra from the pedunculopontine and laterodorsal tegmental nuclei
The cholinergic innervation of the compact and reticular parts of the substantia nigra in the rat was investigated by use of highly sensitive retrograde and anterograde tract-tracing methods inExpand

Cholinergic systems mediate action from movement to higher consciousness
There is a fundamental link between cholinergic neurotransmitter function and overt and covert actions. Major cholinergic systems include peripheral motor neurons organizing skeletal muscle movementsExpand

Nerve growth factor receptor is associated with cholinergic neurons of the basal forebrain but not the pontomesencephalon
Sequential immunohistochemical demonstration of nerve growth factor receptor and cholinergic acetyltransferase on the same tissue section in the rat revealed that approximately 92% of all cholinergicExpand

Postnatal development of cholinergic neurons in the rat: I. Forebrain
The postnatal development of cholinergic projection and local-circuit neurons in the rat forebrain was examined by use of choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) immunohistochemistry andExpand
