For a better understanding of the development of neurotransmitter systems and of their putative functional significance during ontogenesis, the development of the vasotocin (AVT) and mesotocin (MST) systems in the brain of Xenopus laevis was studied by means of immunohistochemical techniques. Weakly immunoreactive fibers were already present at late embryonic stage 38 in the caudoventral part of the telencephalon and in the ventral part of the diencephalon. The earliest immunodetectable AVT and… CONTINUE READING
