The existence of cortical dopamine nerve terminals is demonstrated with a highly sensitive modification of the Falck-Hillarp fluorescence technique. This confirms previous biochemical reports of high dopamine levels in the cortex. The histochemistry reveals that the distribution is regional and confined to the limbic cortex.
