The ascending monoamine pathways in the rat brain are demonstrated by the pile up of fluorescent material occurring in the axons after various types of lesions. The anatomy of the pathways is outlined in drawings of frontal sections of the brain and the origin and termination of several pathways is determined by studying the anterograde and retrograde degeneration occurring after well localised lesions. It is possible to separate the ascending NA pathways into a dorsal and a ventral bundle of… 
Organization of catecholamine neurons projecting to the frontal cortex in the rat
TLDR
The organization of the catecholamine innervation in the frontal lobe of the rat neocortex has been studied by means of the glyoxylic acid fluorescence method in combination with lesions and retrograde tracing of horseradish peroxidase to distinguished three dopaminergic terminal systems.
A radioautographic study of the efferent pathways of the nucleus locus coeruleus
TLDR
The distribution of label from LC provides direct confirmation for connections which have been difficult to visualize in their entirety by any other histological or cytochemical method.

Brain stem projections to the striatum: Experimental morphological studies in the rat
TLDR
Projections from the brain stem to the striatum were investigated in experiments employing anterograde degeneration and retrograde transport techniques, and cell bodies labeled by peroxidase are observed in the substantia nigra, and in caudal mesencephalic and pontine reticular formation.
Catecholamine innervation of the basal forebrain IV. Topography of the dopamine projection to the basal forebrain and neostriatum
TLDR
The topography of the DA neuron projection on the basal forebrain and neostriatum is organized in three planes, dorsal‐ventral, medial‐lateral and anterior‐posterior, consistent with the view that the DA neurons of the SN‐VTA complex form a single nuclear group with a highly topographically organized projection innervating not only deep nuclei of the telencephalon but allocortical structures as well.
A study of subcortical afferents to the hippocampal formation in the rat
TLDR
It is clear that these afferents to the hippocampusal formation do not comprise a single, homogeneous system, and that their terminations within the hippocampal region are not restricted to a particular topographic level (i.e. septal, intermediate or temporal).

Summary The topography of the median eminence-pituitary catecholamine innervation has been studied with respect to the origin, course and termination of its different components. Thirteen types of
Afferent projections to the rat locus coeruleus as determined by a retrograde tracing technique
TLDR
Following HRP injections into the rat locus coeruleus, forebrain structures containing labelled neurons included the insular cortex, the central nucleus of the amygdala, the medial, lateral and magnocellular preoptic areas, the bed nucleus ofthe stria terminalis, and the dorsomedial, paraventricular and lateral hypothalamic areas.

TLDR
Findings indicate that the loss of amine occurs, in large part, as a trans-synaptic effect of the lesions in neurons one or more synapses removed from the degenerated axons of the medial forebrain bundle.
The medial forebrain bundle (MFB) and ascending monoaminergic pathways in the cat.
TLDR
Findings confirm previous findings suggesting that the dopamine and 5-HT ascending pathways course in the ventromedial tegmental area of the brainstem from the level of the upper pons to that of the caudal hypothalamus.
Ascending Monoamine Neurons to the Telencephalon and Diencephalon
TLDR
A number of ascending monoamine neuron systems from the lower brain stem are demonstrated and mapped out by studying the anterograde and retrograde changes that occur in these neurons after various types of brain lesions.
A demonstration of a fall in brain serotonin following central nervous system lesions in the rat.
TLDR
It is suggested that the results may represent evidence for “serotonergic” fibers in the central nervous system in male albino rats, and a possible similarity between sectioning of peripheral and central nerve fibers is discussed.
Ascending projections of the substantia nigra in the rat ,
TLDR
The demonstration of projections from the cerebellum and substantia nigra to VM establishes this nucleus as the homologue in the rat of nuclei ventralis anterior and ventral is lateralis lateralis thalami in primates.
CELLULAR LOCALIZATION OF MONOAMINES IN THE SPINAL CORD.
TLDR
Strong evidence was obtained for the view that noradrenaline (NA) and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) are localized in special systems of nerve tracts which from supraspinal centers descend in the lateral and anterior funiculi to terminate in the gray matter and which belong to monoaminergic neurons.
Identification and terminal distribution of the tubero-hypophyseal monoamine fibre systems in the rat by means of stereotaxic and microspectrofluorimetric techniques.
TLDR
Two prominent neurone systems in the hypothalamo-pituitary complex are demonstrated: one containing dopamine, the other containing noradrenaline, and the results suggest the involvement of a third neurone system, probably containing an indole derivative.
Effect of brain lesions on striatal monoamines in the cat.
TLDR
There is a close relationship between such results in the monkey and the findings previously reported in parkinsonian patients, and it was thought worthwhile to verify the results.
The nigrostriatal pathway: a correlative study based on neuroanatomical and neurochemical criteria in the cat and the monkey.
TLDR
The results suggest that the nigrostriatal fibers establish a topographical relationship between corresponding regions of the substantia nigra and the corpus striatum similar to that disclosed in the striatonigral pathway.

TLDR
D OPAMINE, a catecholamine, is synthesized from the amino acid tyrosine by a series of enzymatic reactions, outlined in Fig. 1, which shows an extremely high content in the striata, as compared to other neural structures, while norepinephrine is highest in the hypothalamus.
