Correlation of preoptic neuronal activity with spontaneous and induced cortical EEG changes.
TLDR
The changes in unit activity showed some concordance and dissociation between spontaneous and induced EEG alterations and the possible interaction of inputs from cortex and brain stem at the level of the preoptic area is discussed.
Mesolimbic component of the ascending cholinergic pathways: electrophysiological-pharmacological study.
TLDR
Results of the study suggest that LDT cholinergic neurons project and terminate in the anterior hypothalamic-medial preoptic region (AHMP) and that their activation causes a decrease in the mean firing rate of the AHMP neurons.
Cacna1c (Cav1.2) Modulates Electroencephalographic Rhythm and Rapid Eye Movement Sleep Recovery.
TLDR
Results suggest the involvement of Cacna1c (Cav1.2) in fast electroencephalogram oscillations and REM sleep regulatory processes may rather resemble a sleep phenotype observed in schizophrenia patients.

Electrophysiological analysis of pathways connecting the medial preoptic area with the mesencephalic central grey matter in rats.
TLDR
Evidence is provided for direct, reciprocal connexions between the midbrain central grey and the medial preoptic area that may play a role in controlling neuroendocrine and behavioural aspects of reproductive functions and changes in conduction velocity during the supranormal period.
Sleep Suppression after Basal Forebrain Lesions in the Cat
TLDR
The severity of sleep suppression was found to be related to the size and localization of lesions placed specifically within the preoptic area and not to transient disturbances in feeding and temperature regulation.
