Figure 4

Ex vivo microPET and autoradiographic brain images of a rat. MicroPET images ((A) horizontal, (B) coronal, and (C) sagittal) validate maximum binding in the thalamus (TH) followed by the cortical regions (COR). An autoradiograph of the brain in (A) showing 10-μm horizontal sections (D) and an anatomical view (E) of the slice in (D). 18F-nifene binding followed the order TH > subiculum (SUB) > cortex (COR) > striatum (STR) > cerebellum (CE).
