[Peptidergic innervation of the cerebral blood vessels--an immunohistochemical study].

By an immunohistochemical technique, vasoactive polypeptide (VIP)-and substance P-containing nerve fibers are observed in the cerebral blood vessels. VIP-containing nerve fibers distribute in a spiral pattern, similar to the muscle cell distribution pattern. Under an electron microscopic observation, VIP-immunoreactive terminals lie just near to a muscle… (More)
