The present study investigated descending projections from the substantia nigra to the auditory tectum. Small (0.02-0.05 microliters) injections of a 30-60% aqueous solution of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) were made unilaterally into the inferior colliculus in rats, cats, and bats (Eptesicus fuscus). Tissue blocks including the substantia nigra, superior colliculus, and inferior colliculus were removed, sectioned, and processed for visualization of HRP. Results show that the substantia nigra… CONTINUE READING
