We earlier reported that chronic intraventricular injections of NGF into adult rats with partial transection of the fimbria prevent the lesion-induced disappearance of cholinergic neurons in the medial septal nucleus and the diagonal band of Broca (Hefti, 1986). The present study assessed the specificity and treatment requirements of this effect of NGF. Immunohistochemical visualization of NGF receptors (NGF-R) revealed that these molecules are selectively located in forebrain cholinergic… CONTINUE READING
