Development of cholinergic neurons in the septal/diagonal band complex of the rat.

In the present study we employed immunohistochemical techniques using a polyclonal antibody against choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) to determine the distribution and cytological features of cholinergic neurons in the developing septal/diagonal band complex of the rat. ChAT-positive perikarya were first clearly detected in this region on embryonic day 17… (More)
