Serotonergic neurons were recorded in the nucleus centralis superior (NCS) in freely moving cats and were initially identified on-line by their slow and regular spontaneous activity (mean 2.55 +/- 0.21 spikes/s). Discharge rates of NCS serotonergic neurons were highest during active waking (AW) (mean 2.94 +/- 0.28 spikes/s), decreased during slow-wave sleep (middle of SWS: mean 1.38 +/- 0.18 spikes/s), and were lowest during REM sleep (mean 0.46 +/- 0.13 spikes/s). The activity of serotonergic… CONTINUE READING
