Cyto- and chemoarchitecture of the hypothalamus of a wallaby (Macropus eugenii) with special emphasis on oxytocin and vasopressinergic neurons

Cheng, Gang; Marotte, Lauren; Ashwell, Ken W S


We have studied the organization of the hypothalamus in an Australian diprotodontid metatherian mammal, the wallaby (Macropus eugenii), using cytoarchitectural, histochemical and immunohistochemical techniques. Coronal sections of adult brains were processed for Nissl staining, histochemical reactivity (cytochrome oxidase, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate diaphorase and acetylcholinesterase) and immunohistochemistry (antibodies to tyrosine hydroxylase, calbindin, calretinin,...[Show more]
