To gain more insight into the dopaminergic system of amphibians and the evolution of catecholaminergic systems in vertebrates in general, the distribution of dopamine and tyrosine hydroxylase immunoreactivity was studied in the brains of the anuran Rana ridibunda and the urodele Pleurodeles waltlii. In both species, dopamine-immunoreactive (DAi) cell bodies were observed in the olfactory bulb, the preoptic area, the suprachiasmatic nucleus, the nucleus of the periventricular organ and its… CONTINUE READING
