Abstract

Choline acetyltransferase immunohistochemistry combined with the retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase showed that the reticular and mediodorsal thalamic nuclei of the cat receive an important input from cholinergic and non-cholinergic neurons of substantia innominata and adjacent structures in the basal forebrain.
