The distribution of somatostatin-like immunoreactivity in the caudate, putamen, globus pallidus and ventral mesencephalon of the normal human brain has been studied with immunocytochemical techniques, and compared to that seen in Huntington's disease. Within the normal striatum, sparsely distributed varicose fibers and a population of medium-sized neurons… CONTINUE READING
