Fig. 3

Sagittal schematic of NBM cell body location and projections in mice. NBM is extensive and has close topographical relationships with many different structures. Consistently, the NBM is always adjacent to the globus pallidus (GP) and is the main cholinergic projection to the neocortex and amygdala. Connectivity between individual sectors of the NBM and various cortical areas displays topographic specificity. Abbreviations: ac, anterior commissure; cc, corpus callosum; cp, cerebral peduncle; CPu, caudate putamen; GP, globus pallidus; ic, internal capsule; LV, lateral ventricle; opt, optic tract; PO, preoptic area
