Serotonergic projections from the ventral medulla to the intermediolateral cell column in the rat

Brain Res. 1981 Apr 27;211(1):146-52. doi: 10.1016/0006-8993(81)90074-3.


Serotonergic neurons of the ventral medulla (B1 and B3 cell groups are retrogradely labeled after HRP injection in the T1-T2 levels of the spinal cord. Following stereotaxic injections of 3H-labeled amino acids in this region, a direct projection to th intermediolateral cell column and ventral horn can be demonstrated.
