As part of a larger study concerning the role of neurons in the medial medullary reticular formation in sleep-wake states, the distribution and projections of cholinergic, GABAergic and serotonergic neurons were studied within the lower brainstem of the cat. Cells were plotted with the aid of an image analysis system through the medullary reticular formation and raphe in adjacent sections immunostained for choline acetyltransferase, glutamic acid decarboxylase and serotonin. Immunostained… CONTINUE READING
