Light microscopic autoradiography performed subsequent to intraocular injection of 3H-leucine revealed silver grains (SG) above axons of the optic tract which could be followed into the ventral and caudal portion of the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) and above the contralateral anterior hypothalamic nucleus (AHN). By high resolution photometric measurement and computer processing the labelled areas were analysed, thus yielding statistical data of the relative grain distribution. The highest SG… CONTINUE READING
