The serotonergic innervation of the developing superior colliculus and ventrolateral nucleus of the thalamus of the rat were studied with light and electron microscope immunocytochemistry. We compared the pattern of innervation and synaptic organization of the serotonin (5-HT) system in the superficial and deep layers of the superior colliculus. We also compared the developmental pattern of synaptic incidence of 5-HT varicosities in the superior colliculus with that in the ventrolateral nucleus… CONTINUE READING
