The CA (catecholamine/catecholaminergic) cell populations of the locus coeruleus (LC) and subcoeruleus (SubC) were studied using serial sections of the human brainstem immunostained with an antibody against tyrosine hydroxylase. The tyrosine hydroxylase-immunoreactive (TH-IR) neurons were plotted in a computer reconstruction system and their number and soma size determined. Serial section computer analysis was then used to create a three dimensional reconstruction of the LC complex. The number… CONTINUE READING
