  • Adrenaline neurons in human brain were demonstrated by immunohistochemistry using antibody to phenylethanolamine-N-methyltransferase (PNMT), the final enzyme in the pathway of adrenaline synthesis, using fixed frozen sections and a highly sensitive free floating technique which utilizes metallization. Small densely packed PNMT-immunoreactive neurons were observed to form a nucleus lying just ventrolateral to the area postrema and in the dorsal part of the nucleus tractus solitarius.
