Accelerated synaptic transmission in nucleus ventralis-postero-lateralis during deep sleep


It is clear that during deep sleep the response evoked in the somatosensory cortex of the cat by shocks to the cutaneous nerve or medial lemniscus is not only higher2 but has a shorter latency as well. Our experiments demonstrate that this decrease in latency occurs during transmission through the nucleus VPL. No change in synaptic transmission time was… (More)
