Unbiased examination of 5-HT axon varicosities in GPi and GPe of squirrel monkey indicates a decreasing anteroposterior gradient. Less than 25% of 5-HT varicosities display a synaptic contact, exclusively found on pallidal dendrites, indicating that 5-HT exerts its modulatory effect upon pallidal afferents mainly through diffuse transmission, whereas its direct control of pallidal neurons results from both synaptic and diffuse transmission.
