Neuromodulators including acetylcholine, norepinephrine, serotonin, dopamine and a range of peptides alter the processing characteristics of cortical networks through effects on excitatory and inhibitory synaptic transmission, on the adaptation of cortical pyramidal cells, on membrane potential, on the rate of synaptic modification, and on other cortical parameters. Computational models of self-organization and associative memory function in cortical structures such as the hippocampus, piriform… Expand
Dopaminergic Regulation of Neuronal Circuits in Prefrontal Cortex
Neuromodulators, like dopamine, have considerable influence on the processing capabilities of neural networks. This has for instance been shown in the working memory functions of prefrontalExpand
Function of Selective Neuromodulatory Projections in the Mammalian Cerebral Cortex: Comparison Between Cholinergic and Noradrenergic Systems
TLDR
The basal forebrain cholinergic projection and the locus coeruleus noradrenergic projection are well-known neuromodulatory projections to the cortex and their roles in controlling four major brain functions: attention, reinforcement, learning and memory, sleep and wakefulness are highlighted. Expand
Noradrenergic suppression of synaptic transmission may influence cortical signal-to-noise ratio.
TLDR
In a computational model of the piriform cortex, the effect of noradrenergic suppression of synaptic transmission on signal-to-noise ratio is analyzed and increases in levels of norepinephrine mediated by locus coeruleus activity appear to enhance the influence of extrinsic input on cortical representations. Expand
Cholinergic modulation of cortical function
TLDR
The physiological effects of acetylcholine serve to enhance the influence of feed- forward afferent input to the cortex while decreasing background activity by suppressing excited feedback connections within cortical circuits. Expand
Noradrenergic Regulation of Hippocampus-Dependent Memory.
TLDR
Advances in the understanding of noradrenaline in the context of these processes may provide a foundation for refining treatment strategies for multiple brain diseases, ranging from post-traumatic stress disorder to Alzheimer's Disease. Expand

TLDR
The signal transduction cascade of the cholinergic pathway may act synergistically with that of the NMDA receptor pathway, whose activation is a prerequisite for cortical plasticity. Expand
Data-Driven Modeling of Cholinergic Modulation of Neural Microcircuits: Bridging Neurons, Synapses and Network Activity
TLDR
Preliminary simulations from the framework corroborate the long-standing notion that ACh desynchronizes spontaneous network activity, and predict that a dose-dependent activation of ACh gives rise to a spectrum of neocortical network activity. Expand
Network architecture, receptive fields, and neuromodulation: computational and functional implications of cholinergic modulation in primary auditory cortex.
TLDR
This work developed a computational model of layers III and IV of AI, constrained by anatomical and physiological data, and identifies key thalamocortical and intracortical circuits that strongly affect tuning curves of model cortical neurons and are also sensitive to cholinergic modulation. Expand
Differences in time course of ACh and GABA modulation of excitatory synaptic potentials in slices of rat hippocampus.
TLDR
In brain slice preparations of hippocampal region CA1, the time course of suppression of extracellularly recorded synaptic potentials after pressure pulse application of acetylcholine and GABA is explored, to give a notion of the relative timecourse of the two modulators. Expand
Sensory-motor gating and cognitive control by the brainstem cholinergic system
TLDR
Observations suggest that the brainstem cholinergic system facilitates the central processes for motor command generation and extrinsic sensory processing at the visual thalamus and that PPTN associates movement-related activities with those related to task performance and reward. Expand

Acetylcholine and Learning in a Cortical Associative Memory
  • M. Hasselmo

TLDR
It is proposed that the effects of acetylcholine in cortical structures may provide a neuropsychological mechanism for clamping activity to the patterns to be learned, which prevents interference from previously stored patterns during the learning of new patterns. Expand
Modulation of associative memory function in a biophysical simulation of rat piriform cortex.
TLDR
A realistic biophysical simulation of the effects of acetylcholine on synaptic transmission and neuronal adaptation in the piriform cortex shows that these effects act together to set the appropriate dynamics for learning, whereas removal of both effects sets theappropriate dynamics for recall.

Nicotinic and muscarinic modulations of excitatory synaptic transmission in the rat prefrontal cortexin vitro
TLDR
Nicotinic and muscarinic agonists modulate excitatory synaptic transmission mediated at dendritic sites by non-N-methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptors, possibly through a presynaptic action, suggesting ascending cholinergic systems may take part in information processing in the prefrontal cortex through the control of ongoing excitation to pyramidal cells. Expand
Noradrenaline blocks accommodation of pyramidal cell discharge in the hippocampus
TLDR
It is found that NA and cyclic AMP block the Ca2-activated K+ conductance in hippocampal pyramidal cells and that this blockade occurs at a step subsequent to the entry of Ca2+ into the neurone, which greatly increases the number of spikes elicited by a depolarizing stimulus. Expand

TLDR
Data support the hypothesis that synaptic modification of the Schaffer collaterals may store associations between activity in region CA3 and the afferent input to region CA1 from the entorhinal cortex. Expand
Agonists of cholinergic and noradrenergic receptors facilitate synergistically the induction of long-term potentiation in slices of rat visual cortex
TLDR
It is suggested that the agonists of both receptor systems enhanced the depolarizing response to the tetanus and increased NMDA receptor-gated conductances during this response also accounts for the facilitatory effects which ACh and NA have on use-dependent synaptic plasticity in the developing visual cortex.

TLDR
It is concluded that ACh exerts a presynaptic inhibitory effect on both excitatory and inhibitory afferents to hippocampal pyramidal neurons, occurring in all regions of Ammon's horn tested as well as in stratum moleculare of fascia dentata. Expand
Norepinephrine decreases synaptic inhibition in the rat hippocampus
TLDR
Intracellular recording revealed that NE causes a marked and reversible reduction in inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (IPSPs) recorded in CA1 pyramidal cells, and causes an increase in the frequency of spontaneous IPSPs, suggesting that inhibition of interneuronal firing may not account for this disinhibitory action of NE.

Cholinergic modulation of cortical associative memory function.
TLDR
A possible theoretical framework for linking the neuropharmacological effects of acetylcholine to behavioral evidence for a role of acetolcholine in memory function is provided, which could help describe how memory deficits might arise from cholinergic dysfunction in diseases such as Alzheimer's dementia.
