Recent anatomical investigations of the mammalian neostriatum have uncovered discrete neurochemical zones characterized by low levels of AChE and high levels of enkephalin-like immunoreactivity (ELI) compared with the surrounding neostriatal tissue. These regions, termed striosomes, which appear as patches in individual sections, have been associated with specific afferent and efferent pathways that differ from those of the surrounding neostriatal tissue. In the present study, the 3-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
