Distribution of neurotransmitters in the sheep brain

Tillet Y

Although the general organization of the sheep brain is similar to that of other mammals, there are species differences in the fine architecture and neurotransmitter distribution. In sheep, perikarya are generally scattered, unlike the situation in rodents where they are clustered. The same organization is observed in cows and primates. The density of neurones immunoreactive for tyrosine hydroxylase in the dorsorostral diencephalon of sheep is lower than in rodents; A14 and Al...
