A complete stereotaxic neuroanatomical atlas of the rat hindbrain was prepared using transverse serial sections stained with Luxol fast blue and cresyl violet. Catecholamine‐containing cell bodies and fiber terminals were identified by the histofluorescence method. The acetylcholinesterase distribution was histochemically localized. A detailed stereotaxic atlas of the catecholaminergic and acetylcholinesterase‐containing structures is presented.
