This study was performed to test the hypothesis that cholinoceptive basal forebrain systems can significantly influence cholinoceptive pontine mechanisms known to be important for generating rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. This hypothesis was examined by microinjecting the cholinergic agonist carbachol or saline (vehicle control) into the pons, the basal(More)
The goal of rehabilitation for stroke patients in this research was to improve the volitional coordination of the swing phase and stance phases of gait. Functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS) is a promising rehabilitation tool for restoring motor control. For our gait training protocols, FNS systems with surface electrodes were impractical. For the(More)
The selection of appropriate responses is a complex endeavor requiring the integration of many different sources of information in fronto-striatal-thalamic circuits. An often neglected but relevant piece of information is provided by proprioceptive inputs about the current position of our limbs. This study examines the importance of striatal and thalamic(More)
