Abstract

A correlated light and electron microscopic study combining choline acetyltransferase immunocytochemistry with anterograde tracing of Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin revealed that axons of lateral hypothalamic neurons terminate on forebrain cholinergic projection cells. This finding is discussed in relation to direct and indirect corticopetal systems.
