The distribution of putative receptors for the peptide galanin was studied in the normal post-mortem human brain by using 125I-galanin (0.5 nM) in combination with in vitro receptor autoradiography. Specific binding of 125I-galanin was found in a large number of brain areas throughout the neuraxis. Highest binding densities occurred in the basal forebrain and hypothalamus, while the basal ganglia, major parts of the thalamus and the tectum were found to be poor in binding sites. All cortical… CONTINUE READING
