The thalamic reticular nucleus (Rt) is strategically positioned to integrate descending and ascending signals in the control of sensorimotor and other thalamocortical activity. Its prominent role in the generation of sleep spindles notwithstanding, relatively little is known of Rt function in regulating interactions with the sensory environment. We recorded and compared the responses of individual Rt and thalamocortical neurons in the ventroposterior medial (VPm) nucleus of the rat to… CONTINUE READING
