An interconnected series of brain nuclei controls song learning and behavior in male zebra finches (Poephila guttata). This study examined the distribution of fibers, terminals, and somata immunoreactive for two neuropeptides, methionine-enkephalin (ENK) and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP), in song-control nuclei of adult males. In addition, the broad pattern of major regions of labeling throughout the forebrain and midbrain was determined. The telencephalic song-control nuclei MAN… CONTINUE READING
