The basal forebrain-cortex connections of the rat were topographically mapped by retrograde tracer methods; and their contribution to the cholinergic innervation of the cortex was assessed by excitotoxin lesions placed in the rostral and caudal aspects of the complex. Discrete injections of tracer into frontal cortex labeled the prominent multipolar acetylcholinesterase (AchE)-positive cells of the ventromedial globus pallidus. Injections of tracer into the parietal cortex labelled cells in the… CONTINUE READING
