The extent to which individual striatal neurons send collaterals to the globus pallidus, entopeduncular nucleus and substantia nigra in the cat brain was determined by double-retrograde tracing with rhodamine fluorescent latex microspheres in combination with either horseradish peroxidase or the fluorescent nuclear dye Diamidino Yellow. In each case, two of the three target nuclei were injected, each with a different tracer, until all three possible combinations of two had been obtained several… CONTINUE READING
