A10 cell group
Acronym: A10
The term A10 cell group refers to the largest group of cells fluorescent for dopamine in the ventral midbrain tegmentum of rodents ( Dahlstrom-1964 ) and primates ( Felten-1983 ). It corresponds largely to the ventral tegmental area, the linear nucleus of the raphe and, in primates, the part of periaqueductal gray located between the left and right oculomotor nuclear complex as defined by Nissl stains.
