  1. 1. On the cholinergic c-bouton

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Johan Hellström; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acetylcholine; Brainstem; Immunohistochemistry; In situ hybridization; Motoneurons; Muscarinic receptors; Rat; Spinal cord; Ventral horn cells;

    Abstract : The cholinergic C-bouton is a large nerve terminal type exclusively contacting motoneuron cell somata and proximal dendrites. C-boutons are characterized by subsurface cisterns found beneath the postsynaptic membrane, which is an exclusive feature for these nerve terminals. The origin of the C-boutons is unknown. READ MORE

    Abstract : The striatum is the major component of the ventral telencephalon and basal ganglia, involved in the processing of cortical information. The vast majority of the neuronal population in the striatum are striatal projection neurons, with connection to the globus pallidus and substantia nigra. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cholinergic and dopaminergic aspects of dementia in Parkinson's disease: postmortem neuropathological findings and modeling of cognitive dysfunction in rodents

    University dissertation from Brain Repair and Imaging in Neural Systems (BRAINS)

    Author : Helene Hall; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]

    Abstract : Motor symptoms are currently considered the first clinical hallmark of Parkinson’s disease (PD). They develop as a result of dopamine loss in the striatum, subsequent to the progressive neurodegeneration of dopamin- ergic neurons in the substantia nigra. READ MORE
