This report describes the distribution of noradrenergic cells in the brainstem and the pattern of terminal varicosities in the spinal cord of monkey using the immunocytochemical localization of dopamine-fl-hydroxylase (DBH). Using two separate and equally reliable techniques, retrograde transport of the antibody to DBH and a double-labeling method, the cells of origin of noradrenergic fibers in the spinal cord have been identified. The results of these studies indicate that 79% of all… CONTINUE READING
