The distribution of GABA-immunoreactive neurons in the subnuclei of the rat bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BST) was studied by means of GABA immunohistochemistry. For detection of GABA immunoreactivity we used polyclonal antibodies and silver intensification. We have compared the pattern of distribution of immunoreactive cells in male and female rats and found some sexual difference, that may underlie functional variety. Computer assisted quantitative analysis of GABA-immunoreactive… CONTINUE READING
