Figure 6.
Immunocytochemical detection of choline acetyltransferase, the acetylcholine-synthesizing enzyme, using a protocol outlined in Fig. 5. Cholinergic cell bodies and dendrites located within the medial septal nucleus are seen in A. These neurons are part of the origin of the cholinergic septohippocampal pathway. The low-magnification darkfield photomicrograph in B illustrates the distribution pattern of cholinergic fibers and terminals within the dentate gyrus. The boxed area in B is seen in C under brightfield illumination. (Courtesy of Dr. László Záborszky.)
