The ontogenetic development of the serotoninergic system in the embryonic as well as in posthatching chick brain was studied with an indirect immunohistochemical technique with the aid of a specific antibody to serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine). By embryonic day 4, rostral and caudal groups of serotonin-immunoreactive cell populations appeared in the mesencephalon and rostral and caudal rhombencephalon. At this stage, the rostral group had a considerable number of labelled cells that sent axons… CONTINUE READING
