Free amino acids and cholinergic enzymes were investigated in the cerebellum of reeler and weaver mice in an attempt to identify the neurotransmitter characteristic of the granule cell population and to clarify any neurotransmitter abnormalities of their pre- and postsynaptic neurons induced by their depletion. The data indicate that glutamic acid may be the neurotransmitter of the granule cells. Pre- and postsynaptic neurotransmitter activity seemed not to be markedly altered in cerebellar… CONTINUE READING
