Abstract

The coexistence of substance P- and glutamic acid decarboxylase-like immunoreactivity in cell bodies was investigated in the entopeduncular neurons of the rat by the double-immunofluorescence method using species-specific antibodies. Over half of the substance P-like immunoreactive cells were GABAergic. Double-labeled neurons were generally seen in the rostral to the middle region of the entopeduncular nucleus. Since the rostral portion of the entopeduncular nucleus mainly projects to the lateral habenular nucleus, it is suggested that double-labeled neurons in the entopeduncular nucleus largely project to the lateral habenular nucleus which is involved in the limbic system.
