In the mammalian neocortex, neurons containing tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), the rate-limiting enzyme in catecholamine synthesis, constitute an enigmatic and ill-defined group of aspiny non-pyramidal cells. In the human neocortex, these neurons are mostly found in layers V-VI, the same layers in which another conspicuous group of nitrergic non-pyramidal cells are found - those containing nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) and that can be labeled by nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate diaphorase… CONTINUE READING
