Peptides coexisting with norepinephrine (NE): projections in the rat CNS. Schematic drawing of a parasagittal view of the rat brain depicting the coexistence of galanin (GAL), neuropeptide Y (NPY), and NE in the locus coeruleus and A1 cell groups and their ascending and descending projections. Solid green lines indicate GAL projections. Dashed red lines indicate NPY projections. Line thickness indicates the percentage of peptidergic neurons projecting to terminal regions.
