Heterogeneous distribution of benzodiazepine receptors in the human striatum: a quantitative autoradiographic study comparing the pattern of receptor labelling with the distribution of acetylcholinesterase staining.

The distribution of benzodiazepine receptors in the human striatum was studied by quantitative autoradiography following in vitro labelling of cryostat sections with [3H]flunitrazepam, and the pattern of receptor-labelling was compared to the distribution of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) staining in adjacent sections. A heterogeneous pattern of benzodiazepine… CONTINUE READING
