The peri-locus coeruleus alpha (peri-LCalpha) of the mediodorsal pontine tegmentum contains cholinergic and non-cholinergic neurons, and is critically implicated in the regulation of both wakefulness and paradoxical sleep (PS). The peri-LCalpha receives dense monoaminergic (adrenergic, noradrenergic, serotonergic, dopaminergic and histaminergic) afferent projections, but little is known about their exact roles in the control of sleep-wake cycles. We have therefore examined the in vivo effects… CONTINUE READING
