59140 Nucleus of the solitary tract commissural partKolliker-Fuse subnucleus strongHRP/WGA
Collator note: injection of WGA-HRP in the KF, with minimal extent in the adjoining nuclei. Experiment R609, page 549. The injection site shown in Figure 6A roughly corresponds to level 49 Swanson Atlas.
Herbert H., Moga M.M. & Saper C., 1990
General description technique/protocol: Caudally, there was heavy cellular and terminal labeling in the commissural NTS (Fig. 6B). The retrogradely labeled cells were almost evenly distributed over the ipsi- and contralateral commissural subnucleus, with their long axes oriented mediolaterally. Collator note: Swanson Atlas level 72
