The atonia and myoclonia of active (REM) sleep.
Postsynaptic inhibition is a principal process responsible not only for the atonia of the somatic musculature during active sleep but also for the phasic episodes of decreased motoneuron excitabilityExpand

Effects on sleep and wakefulness of the injection of hypocretin-1 (orexin-A) into the laterodorsal tegmental nucleus of the cat
Anatomical data demonstrate a dense projection, in the cat, from hypocretin (orexin) neurons in the hypothalamus to the laterodorsal tegmental nucleus (LDT), which is a critical pontine site that isExpand

Colocalization of γ-aminobutyric acid and acetylcholine in neurons in the laterodorsal and pedunculopontine tegmental nuclei in the cat: a light and electron microscopic study
Abstract Cholinergic and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) mechanisms in the dorsolateral pontomesencephalic tegmentum have been implicated in the control of active (REM) sleep and wakefulness. To determineExpand

Afferent vagal stimulation: neurographic correlates of induced EEG synchronization and desynchronization.
Summary o 1. Cortical synchronization and desynchronization were induced by afferent cervical vagal stimulation in the cat. 2. By simultaneously recording the vagal neurogram and the induced EEGExpand

Thinking with Whitehead: A Free and Wild Creation of Concepts
Alfred North Whitehead has never gone out of print, but for a time he was decidedly out of fashion in the English-speaking world. In a splendid work that serves as both introduction and eruditeExpand

Motoneuron properties during motor inhibition produced by microinjection of carbachol into the pontine reticular formation of the decerebrate cat.
It is well established that cholinergic agonists, when injected into the pontine reticular formation in cats, produce a generalized suppression of motor activity (1, 3, 6, 14, 18, 27, 33, 50). TheExpand

Basic electrophysiological properties of spinal cord motoneurons during old age in the cat.
1. The electrophysiological properties of alpha-motoneurons in old cats (14-15 yr) were compared with those of adult cats (1-3 yr). These properties were measured utilizing intracellular recordingExpand

Effect of inhibitory amino acid antagonists on masseteric reflex suppression during active sleep
We examined the pharmacological basis for the suppression of the masseteric (jaw-closer) reflex which occurs during the behavioral state of active sleep. Accordingly, the masseteric reflex wasExpand

Changes in electrophysiological properties of cat hypoglossal motoneurons during carbachol-induced motor inhibition
The control of hypoglossal motoneurons during sleep is important from a basic science perspective as well as to understand the bases for pharyngeal occlusion which results in the obstructive sleepExpand
