Changes in 5-HT1A receptor expression in the oculomotor nucleus in a rat model of post-traumatic stress disorder.
This study was meant to locate the neurons projecting to the oculomotor nucleus of the lesser spotted dogfish, Scyliorhinus canicula, by applying biocytin to either the oculomotor nuclei or the medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF).
Since the oculomotor nucleus is in the midbrain and the abducens nucleus is in the pons the two must be connected, and this connection (pathway) is the medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF) (Fig 3).
