Recent studies have shown that at least some of the functional effects of serotonin (5-HT) on motoneuron excitability are direct and are mediated via postsynaptic 5-HT receptors on motoneurons. To determine the spatial distribution of direct inputs from the serotonin system on the proximal and distal dendrites of individual motoneurons, we examined identified motoneurons in vivo with a combination of immunohistochemical localization of 5-HT-immunoreactive boutons and intracellular staining with… CONTINUE READING
