The course, distribution, and possible neurotransmitter specificity of a projection from the lateral hypothalamic area (LHA) and zona incerta to the hippocampal formation (dentate gyrus, Ammon's horn, subicular region, and entorhinal area) and spinal cord were examined anatomically in the adult rat. First, small injections of the fluorescent tracer fast blue were made into either the septal part of the dentate gyrus and Ammon's horn or the entorhinal area, and the distribution of retrogradely… CONTINUE READING
