We used light and electron microscopic and immunohistochemical methods to map the distribution of cholecystokinin (CCK) in the cerebral cortex of a lizard, Psammodromus algirus. At light microscopy, the CCK immunoreactivity was limited to fibers and terminals densely innervating all cortical regions except for the lateral (pyriform) cortex which was very slightly immunostained. The CCK-positive terminals were almost restricted to the cell layers in every cortical region where they surrounded… CONTINUE READING
