We describe the distribution of axons immunoreactive for dopamine in pons and medulla oblongata of rat under normal conditions or after inhibition of monoamine oxidase or dopamine beta-hydroxylase. In the pons of non-treated animal, fairly dense plexuses of dopamine-immunoreactive varicose fibers were found in the locus coeruleus, dorsal parabrachial and dorsal raphe nuclei, central gray and reticular formation dorsal to the superior olive. In the medulla oblongata, the immunoreactive fibers… CONTINUE READING
