Distribution of phenylethanolamine N-methyltransferase cell bodies, axons, and terminals in monkey brainstem: an immunohistochemical mapping study.


Adrenaline (epinephrine) is an important candidate transmitter in descending spinal control systems. To date intrinsic spinal adrenergic neurons have not been reported; thus adrenergic input is presumably derived from brainstem sites. In this regard, the localization of adrenergic neurons in the brainstem is an important consideration. Maps of adrenergic… (More)
