A number of people asked me to pass along what I came up with for LaTeX formats
for Neurosci Abstracts.   The following is based on a response from David Jaffe. 
Hope it's useful.  YMMV.

ORIGINS OF CORTICAL AND CEREBELLAR PROJECTIONS TO THE RED NUCLEUS
IN THE MONKEY. \underline{D. R. Humphrey$^*$, R. Gold, and D. J. Reed}.
Lab. of Neurophysiology, Emery Univ. Shcool of Med., Atlanta, GA 30322.

As a prelude to a study of their movement-related behavior in the
conscious animal, retrograde cell labeling techqniques were used to
define the distribution of cotrico- and cerebellorubral cells in
rhesus and cynomolgous monkeys. Horseradish peroxidase (Sigma VI,
30-50\% solution) was injected (0.05-0.2 $\mu$L) into the red nucleus
(RN) bilaterally in 10 animals. Survival times ranged from 48-72 hr,
and after removal the brainstem, cerbellum and cerebral cortices were
sectioned at 50 and reacted with diaminobenzidine.  A cobalt chloride
modification was also used to enhance visualization of the reaction
product.
