Ascending sensory information flowing through the visual thalamus is dynamically regulated by a number of modulatory influences. An important part of this ascending modulation is a cholinergic projection from the parabrachial region of the brainstem (PBR). In addition to containing cholinergic fibers, this projection has been identified in some species as the exclusive extrinsic source of fibers containing the neuronal form of nitric oxide synthase (nNOS). In this study, we examined the… CONTINUE READING
