Neostriatal tissue from rat brain was examined in ribbons of serial sections, using tissue from subjects in which the synaptic marker 5-hydroxydopamine had been injected into the lateral ventricle. A total of 440 synaptic terminals, identified by the presence of a population of vesicles, was studied, including those labeled by 5-hydroxydopamine and all those unlabeled in the surrounding neuropil. Three categories of synaptic profiles innervating neostriatal dendrites could be discerned. One… CONTINUE READING
