A Circumscribed Projection from the Nucleus of the Solitary Tract to the Nucleus Ambiguus in the Rat: Anatomical Evidence for Somatostatin-284mmunoreactive Interneurons Subserving Reflex Control of Esophageal Motility


Axonal transport and immunohistochemical methods were used to investigate the anatomical and biochemical organization of projections from the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) to the rostral, esophageal, part of the nucleus ambiguus (NA) in the rat. Discrete iontophoretic deposits of a retrogradely transported tracer, fluorogold, placed in the rostra1 NA… (More)
