A cholinergic propriospinal innervation of the rat spinal cord.

Author information

  • 1Department of Physiology, University of Leeds, UK.


Previous work has suggested the presence of a widespread, intrinsic cholinergic innervation of the spinal cord. A combination of retrograde axonal tract tracing and choline acetyltransferase immunocytochemistry was used to show that there is a propriospinal cholinergic innervation of the rat spinal cord that arises from short-range projections (spanning up to six spinal segments) of cholinergic neurons known as 'central canal' and 'partition' cells.
