Nucleus basalis (NB) neurons are a primary source of neocortical acetylcholine (ACh) and likely contribute to mechanisms of neocortical activation. However, the functions of neocortical activation and its cholinergic component remain unclear. To identify functional consequences of NB activity, we have studied the effects of NB stimulation on thalamocortical transmission. Here we report that tetanic NB stimulation facilitated field potentials, single neuron discharges, and monosynaptic… CONTINUE READING
