A monoclonal antibody to choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) was utilized for immunocytochemical identification of cholinergic neurons in the basolateral hypothalamus. Light and electron microscopic examination revealed a network of cell bodies, dendrites, and axonal processes dorsolateral to the supraoptic nucleus. Within this region the cells immunoreactive for ChAT receive numerous unlabeled terminals which contact dendrites, cell soma, axons and occasional somatic spines. In a few cases, small… CONTINUE READING
