Overview of the neuroanatomy of the brain. a Frontal vibratome section at the mid-level of the brain, double-labeled against acetylated tubulin (yellow-red) and RFamide (green). b Sagittal vibratome section of the brain, triple-labeled against acetylated tubulin (yellow-red), RFamide (green) and nuclei (blue, B1) as well as against acetylated tubulin, separately (black-white inverted, B2). Insets (bottom left corner in A and right upper corner in B1) show position and orientation of depicted sections in the brain.
