Modulation of desynchronized sleep through microinjection of β-adrenergic agonists and antagonists in the dorsal pontine tegmentum of the cat


Brain noradrenergic systems have often been implicated in the regulation of desynchronized sleep (DS). In particular, the reciprocal interaction model of DS generation postulates that noradrenergic neurons in the locus coeruleus inhibit DS-executive cells located in the pontine reticular formation. Accordingly, since noradrenergic inhibition is generally… (More)
