Hypocretin-1 (hcrt-1)-containing axons have been shown to have an extensive distribution within the central nervous system, although the total number of hypothalamic hcrt-1 neurons has been shown to be small. This suggests that hcrt-1 neurons may innervate central structures with similar function through collateral axonal projections. Retrograde tract-tracing techniques combined with immunohistochemistry were used in this study to investigate whether hypothalamic hcrt-1-containing neurons send… CONTINUE READING
