The locus coeruleus is a widely projecting isthmal noradrenergic nucleus. In the zebrafish, it consists of between three and ten neurons, most of which have multiple, bilaterally projecting axons. Immunohodological studies show that the locus coeruleus provides most, if not all, of the noradrenergic innervation of the brain rostral to the isthmus. The pathways and targets in the zebrafish are similar to ascending coeruleal projections of other vertebrates. Axons ascend through two main pathways… CONTINUE READING
