Acetylcholinesterase histochemistry suggests that the pretectal nucleus corticalis of teleost fish may be cholinergic. Because immunohistochemical analysis with antibodies against choline acetyltransferase provides a more reliable means of recognizing cholinergic central nervous structures, we investigated transverse brain sections of the African cichlid fish, Hemichromis lifalili and Hemichromis guttatus, with standard immunohistochemical techniques and found the nucleus corticalis to contain… CONTINUE READING
