Cholinergic neurons in the rat septal complex: ultrastructural characterization and synaptic relations with catecholaminergic terminals.

  • Thomas Milner
  • Published 1991 in The Journal of comparative neurology


Physiological and pharmacological studies have suggested that catecholamines modulate cholinergic neurons in the medial septal and diagonal band nuclei (i.e., the septal complex). Thus, the ultrastructural morphology of neurons containing choline acetyltransferase (ChAT), the biosynthetic enzyme for acetylcholine, and their relation to catecholaminergic… (More)
