Synaptic connections of GABA-containing boutons in the lateral cervical nucleus of the cat: an ultrastructural study employing pre- and post-embedding immunocytochemical methods.


The lateral cervical nucleus receives input from the spinocervical tract and projects to the thalamus and mesencephalon. The organization of this nucleus was examined using two immunocytochemical methods. Pre-embedding immunolabelling was performed using an antibody against glutamate decarboxylase, and post-embedding immunogold-reaction was performed with… (More)
