A morphometric and microdensitometric characterization of the dopamine neurons of the mediobasal hypothalamus and their relationships with several other chemically identified systems, including putative tyrosine hydroxylase-positive/dopamine-negative neurons, was carried out after visualization of dopamine content by both immunocytochemistry and the Falck-Hillarp technique. Quantitative assessment of co-existence demonstrated that more than 95% of dopamine-immunoreactive neurons also contained… CONTINUE READING
