Topographical distributions of endomorphinergic pathways from nucleus tractus solitarii to periaqueductal gray in the rat.


In the central nervous system (CNS), endomorphin 1 (EM1)- and endomorphin 2 (EM2)-containing neuronal cell bodies have been found in the nucleus tractus sollitarii (NTS) and the hypothalamus, and EMergic fibers and terminals are distributed widely in many regions of the CNS, including the periaqueductal gray (PAG). The aim of the present study was to… (More)
