    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Habenulopetal catecholamine (CA)-containing neurons were determined using Fluoro-Gold retrograde tracing combined with a CA-fluorescence technique. A robust number of habenulopetal CA neurons were found mainly in the ipsilateral locus coeruleus (LC), while a considerable number of habenulopetal non-CA neurons were found in the LC, subcoeruleus, A5, A4 and A7 areas.
