Cytochrome Oxidase Atlas of Rat Brain

Abstract

This is an atlas of cytochrome oxidase activity in the rat brain made with sections stained with our quantitative histochemical method, and adjacent sections stained with cresyl violet. We used a fresh-frozen brain, without perfusion-fixation, from an adult hooded male rat. Bregma coordinates and brain structures are identified for each of fourteen Bregma levels in the coronal plane.
