Anatomical, neurochemical and electrophysiological evidence indicates the presence of multiple neuronal subpopulations within the rodent globus pallidus (GP). One subpopulation that has not been well characterized is GP neurons that express preproenkephalin mRNA (PPE+ cells). The present study seeks to further characterize GP subpopulations by determining whether the PPE+ GP neurons express parvalbumin immunoreactivity (PV-IR) and where their axons project by retrogradely labeling pallidal… CONTINUE READING
