Experiments in infant rats have revealed patterns of intense acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity in primary sensory thalamic nuclei and thalamocortical recipient zones of primary sensory areas of cerebral cortex. The distribution and appearance of AChE staining indicates that the transient AChE in these areas is characteristic of thalamocortical neurons. The patterns of AChE are detectable during the first postnatal week of life, reach peak intensity during the second postnatal week, and… CONTINUE READING
