The somatodendritic structure of projection neurons was morphometrically examined in the nucleus accumbens of human brain. In contrast to reticular neurons, spiny neurons of the nucleus accumbens and dorsal striatum have different somatodendritic structure. In both parts of the striatum, reticular neurons were NADPH-diaphorase-positive.
