In the rat, the extent of collateralization of projections from the cerebellar nuclei to the red nucleus and inferior olive was investigated using a retrograde double labeling technique. The combination of tracers selected, cholera toxin-β-subunit and WGA-BSA-gold, not only enabled the use of small injection sites but also resulted in clearly distinguishable and permanently stained neurons that could be analyzed in counterstained sections.
