Using an indirect immunoperoxidase technique, the location of neurotensin-like fibers and cell bodies was studied in the diencephalon of the cat. The findings showed that the hypothalamus is richer in neurotensin-like-immunoreactive structures than the thalamus, and that neurotensin-like-immunoreactive structures are more widely distributed in the hypothalamus than in the thalamus. A high density of immunoreactive fibers was observed in the hypothalamic regions, area hypothalamica dorsalis… CONTINUE READING
