Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)-like immunoreactivity has been examined in the brain of the little brown bat, Myotis lucifugus, using light microscopic immunocytochemistry and the indirect antibody enzyme method of Sternberger. Animals were sacrificed at three different and discrete levels of physiological activity: euthermic, hypothermic and hibernating. The density and distribution of immunoreactive neurons and fibres was compared in the three animal groups with the aid of a… CONTINUE READING
