In order to determine the cholinoceptive brainstem structures critical for PS generation, we investigated the effect on PS induction of the injection of a small dose and volume (0.4 microgram/0.2 microliter) of the cholinergic agonist carbachol in the following caudal brainstem structures: 1) the caudal mesencephalic reticular formation, especially the nucleus pedunculopontinus pars compacta or X area; 2) the mediodorsal pontine tegmentum, in particular the nuclei locus coeruleus (LC), locus… CONTINUE READING
