Abstract
Dopamine (DA) projections from the mesencephalon are believed to play a critical role during development and are essential for cognitive and behavioral functions. Since the postnatal maturation patterns of these projections differ substantially between various brain regions, cortical, limbic or subcortical areas might exhibit varying vulnerabilities concerning developmental disorders. The dopaminergic afferents of the rodent prefrontal cortex show an extremely prolonged maturation which is very sensitive to epigenetic challenges. However, less is known about the development of the DA innervation of caudal limbic areas. Therefore, immunohistochemically stained DA fibers were quantitatively examined in the basolateral (BLA) and central amygdaloid nucleus (CE) and the ventrolateral entorhinal cortex (EC) of the Mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus). Animals of different ages, ranging from juvenile [postnatal day (PD) 14, 20, 30)] to adolescent (PD70), adult (6, 18 months) and aged (24 months), were analyzed. Results show a significant increase of fibers between PD14 and PD20 in the BLA and lateral part of the CE, with a trend for a subsequent decline in fiber densities until PD30. The EC and medial part of the CE showed no developmental changes. Interestingly, none of the investigated areas showed significant reductions of DA fibers during aging. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V.
