Cell survival patterns in the pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus of methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrarahydropyridine-treated monkeys and 60HDA-lesioned rats: evidence for diffences to idiopathic Parkinson disease patients

We explore the patterns of cell loss in the pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus (PpT), a major locomotor and muscle tone suppression centre of the brainstem, in two animal models of Parkinson disease, namely MPTP (methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine)-treated monkeys and 6-hydroxydopamine(6OHDA)-lesioned rats. Although there have been many studies documenting the loss of dopaminergic cells from the substantia nigra in these animal models, there has been little, if any, documentation of a...[Show more]
