In this work we examined the neuronal input to one of the serotoninergic centers in the brain, median raphe nucleus (MR). Special consideration is given to projections of the hypothalamus. To describe the afferents to MR, a retrograde transport technique was used after microinjection of WGA-apoHRP-Gold complex under pressure and subsequent gold-silver intensification on formaldehyde-fixed rat brain sections. Optimal conditions were obtained when the coordinates of the injection site were A… CONTINUE READING
