Retrograde transport of gamma-amino[3H]butyric acid reveals specific interlaminar connections in the striate cortex of monkey.

Abstract:

Several lines of evidence suggest that gamma-aminobutyric acid is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the cerebral cortex. To study the intracortical projection of neurons that selectively accumulate this amino acid, we injected radioactive gamma-aminobutyric acid into the upper layers of the striate cortex of monkeys along tracks at an oblique angle to the pia. Sections from the injected area were then processed by a combination of autoradiography and Golgi impregnation to reveal the distribut...
