초록

The distributions characteristics of neurons displaying immunoreactivity to the catecholamine synthetic enzymes, tyrosine hydroxylase(TH), dopamine-${\beta}$-hydroxylase(DBH), and phenylethanolamine-N-methyltransferase(PNMT) were examined in the adjacent sections of the substantia nigra & ventral tegmentum of the Striped Field Mouse(Apodemus agrarius coreae). None of these cell groups displayed either DBH or PNMT immunoreactivity. Many TH-immunoreactive neurons were present in the substantia nigra & ventral tegmentum. The major dopaminergic cell(TH-positive, DBH- & PNMT-negative) group in the midbrain was present in the pars compacta of substantia nigra and adjacent ventral tegmentum. And smaller dopaminergic cell groups Were found in the pars reticulata of the substantia nigra and central liner nucleus.
