The olfactory tubercle of the cat I. Morphological components

The cortical part undergoes a gradual transformation from a more cortex-like structure in the lateral half of the OT — possibly related to the presence of olfactory fibers — to a more striatum-like organization in the medial half.

Aggregations of granule cells in the basal forebrain (islands of Calleja): Golgi and cytoarchitectonic study in different mammals, including man

A constant topographical relationship exists between granule cell clusters and the parvicellular sublenticular cell groups, which reach their maximum development in man, and between gran‐ ule cells and the rostra1 extension of the nucleus basalis of Meynert.

The ventral pallidal projection to the mediodorsal thalamus: a study with fluorescent retrograde tracers and immunohistofluorescence

Rat basal forebrain projections to the mediodorsal thalamic nucleus (MD) are examined by making injections of retrogradely transported fluorescent tracers into the MD and a large number of labeled cells are present in the olfactory tubercle, and these cells are almost without exception located in dense GAD- positive ventral pallidal areas rather than in striatal regions of the tubercle.

The islands of calleja: Organization and connections

Observations indicate that the islands of Calleja constitute a unique population of granule cells, located in the olfactory tubercle, innervated by dopamine neurons of the mesencephalon and interconnected with Olfactory and non‐olfactory components of the basal forebrain.

The island of Calleja complex of rat basal forebrain. I. Light and electron microscopic observations

An analysis of the cells and their processes within the island of Calleja complexes (ICC) was made in light and electron microscopic preparations to determine synaptic relationships within this part

Catecholamine innervation of the basal forebrain IV. Topography of the dopamine projection to the basal forebrain and neostriatum

The topography of the DA neuron projection on the basal forebrain and neostriatum is organized in three planes, dorsal‐ventral, medial‐lateral and anterior‐posterior, consistent with the view that the DA neurons of the SN‐VTA complex form a single nuclear group with a highly topographically organized projection innervating not only deep nuclei of the telencephalon but allocortical structures as well.
