Coarse and punctate fibres in the hippocampus appeared to be unaffected, with the exception of the most lateral area of the dentate gyrus, where the normally dense fine punctate fibres seemed to be depleted.

The quantitative distribution of GAL-ir in discrete areas of the rat brain is presented in Table 1. Perusal of these values reveals that GAL-ir is unevenly distributed in individual nuclei of the rat CNS. The highest concentrations of GAL-ir (>2000 fmoVmg protein) were observed in the amygdaloid nuclei, the lateral septum, the globus pallidus, the bed nuclei of the stria terminalis, especially the ventral bed nucleus, all diencephalic nuclei investigated, the superior colliculus, the locus coeruleus, the nucleus of the solitary tract and the neurointermediate lobe of the pituitary.
