Inputs from locus coeruleus (LC) appear to be important for altering sensorimotor responses in situations requiring increase vigilance or alertness. This study documents the organization of coeruleo-vestibular pathways in rats, rabbits and monkeys. A lateral descending noradrenergic bundle (LDB) projects from LC to the superior vestibular nucleus (SVN) and rostral lateral vestibular nucleus (LVN). A medial descending noradrenergic bundle (MDB) projects from LC to LVN, the medial vestibular… CONTINUE READING
