Part of the Advances in Behavioral Biology book series (ABBI, volume 30)


Central noradrenergic neurons project to many sites in the brain where they may interact with cholinergic neurons. Areas with noradrenergic innervation where this interaction may occur include the cortex, septum, hippocampus, and hypothalamus (3, 7). These areas receive projections from one or more of the following noradrenergic cell groups: A1, A2, A5, A6 (locus coeruleus) and A7.
