The ultrastructural substrate for functional interactions between intrinsic cholinergic neurons and catecholaminergic afferents to the caudate-putamen nucleus and nucleus accumbens septi (NAS) was investigated immunocytochemically. Single sections of glutaraldehyde-fixed rat brain were processed 1) for the immunoperoxidase labeling of a rat monoclonal antibody against the acetylcholine-synthesizing enzyme choline acetyltransferase (CAT) and 2) for the immunoautoradiographic localization of a… CONTINUE READING
