Cholinergic systems in the midbrain of the eel were identified by using histochemical procedures for the demonstration of the enzymes choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) and acetylcholinesterase. Neurons detected by both methods are located in the stratum periventriculare of the tectum, cranial motor nuclei III and IV, nucleus isthmi, nucleus gustatorius secundarius, nucleus reticularis superior, and nucleus lateralis valvulae. Some projections of these cell groups were studied by injecting… CONTINUE READING
