The distribution of choline-acetyltransferase-like immunoreactive structures in the rat hypothalamus and preoptic area was examined by using avidin-biotin immunocytochemistry. We found that the hypothalamus is richly innervated by the cholinergic neuron system. Sites containing cholinergic neurons of varying density were: medial and lateral preoptic areas, septohypothalamic nucleus, median preoptic area, lateral hypothalamus including the perifornical area, anterior hypothalamic nucleus… CONTINUE READING
