The distribution and sources of putative cholinergic fibers within the lateral geniculate nucleus (GL) of the tree shrew have been examined by using the immunocytochemical localization of choline acetyltransferase (ChAT). ChAT-immunoreactive fibers are found throughout the thalamus but are particularly abundant in the GL as compared to other principal sensory thalamic nuclei (medial geniculate nucleus, ventral posterior nucleus). Individual ChAT-immunoreactive fibers are extremely fine in… CONTINUE READING
