Using immunohistochemical methods we have studied the distribution of substance P fibers, terminals and perikarya throughout the basal ganglia of baboons and at selected levels of the human brain. Immunoreactivity in the substantia nigra pars reticulata, internal segment of the globus pallidus and ventral pallidum was dense and of a characteristic, "woolly-fiber" morphology. The caudate nucleus and putamen contained sharply circumscribed patches of dense immunoreactivity superimposed on a… CONTINUE READING
