Afferents to the ventral tegmental nucleus of Gudden (VT) were investigated in mice, rats, and cats. Unilateral and bilateral injections or iontophoretical applications of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) were made into the region of the VT. The entire cerebrum was then screened for labeled neurons. Following injections situated principally within the VT, in all three species many retrogradely labeled neurons were observed in the mamillary bodies and the lateral habenular nuclei. Fewer labeled… CONTINUE READING
