Abstract

Choline acetyltransferase levels have been measured in specific nuclei of the diencephalon. On the whole, the thalamic nuclei contain higher concentrations of this enzyme than do the hypothalamic and preoptic nuclei. Those nuclei which seem to receive the most dense cholinergic innervation contain the highest levels of choline acetyltransferase.
