Aly and Michele:

Serotonin in  cell bodies is abundant and quite stable for
mmunostaining;   serotonin in fibers is less abundant than in cell bodies,
and is relatively vulnerable for immunodetection.  It is  easier to be
immunotained when the animals are petreated by, MAO inhibitor, pargyline,
and precusor, L-typtophan.
