The choline acetyltransferase (ChAC) concentration of 35 limbic nuclei or regions was determined. ChAC has an uneven distribution in the limbic system. The interpenduncular nucleus contains the highest ChAC concentration in the central nervous system. The olfactory region, the medial habenular nucleus and some nuclei of the amygdala (lateral, basal posterior) are also rich in ChAC.
