Early transection and stimulation studies suggested the existence of sleep-promoting circuitry in the medullary brainstem, yet the location and identity of the neurons comprising this putative hypnogenic circuitry remains unresolved. In the present study, we sought to uncover the location and identity of medullary neurons that might contribute to the regulation of sleep. Here we show the following in rats: (1) a delimited node of medullary neurons located lateral and dorsal to the facial nerve… CONTINUE READING
