The cholinergic basal forebrain in the ferret and its inputs to the auditory cortex

Bajo Lorenzana VM Leach ND, Cordery PM, Nodal FR, King AJ (2011) The cholinergic basal forebrain in the ferret and its inputs to the auditory cortex. IBRO 2011 Abstracts International Brain Research Organization, Florence, Italy.

Summary: Projections from the NB to the auditory cortex were investigated by injecting tracers into the NB itself (n=5), or by applying tracer deposits to the surface of the auditory cortex (n=4). Tracers included Rhodamine, Fluorescein, Cascade Blue, as well as the cholinergic immunotoxin ME20.4-SAP. Both ME20.4-SAP injections in the auditory cortex and epipial tracer deposits revealed that NB provides the main cholinergic input to the cortex, and that this projection is predominantly ipsilateral.
