The morphologies, intercellular organization, and cortical projection patterns of putative cholinergic neurons in the basal forebrain of the rat were examined by use of fluorescent tracer histology in combination with the pharmacohistochemical regimen for acetylcholinesterase (AChE). Intensity staining AChE-containing cells projecting to frontal sensorimotor (Area 10), parietal (Area 2), and temporal (Area 4) cortices were found ipsilaterally in nucleus preopticus magnocellularis, in nucleus… CONTINUE READING
