Alternate consecutive cryostat sections of the rat locus ceruleus (LC) were immunostained for either GABA or serotonin by the unlabelled peroxidase-antiperoxidase method. By identifying the same neurons in adjacent sections of this series, we confirmed that the GABA- and serotonin-ergic neurons are different cell groups. Serial sections of the LC were… CONTINUE READING
