The medial preoptico-anterior hypothalamic area receives adrenergic as well as cholinergic inputs. Independent studies showed that both these inputs influence sleep, wakefulness and body temperature. The role of the adrenergic inputs was studied earlier. The role of cholinergic inputs is reported here. The cholinergic agonist, carbachol, and antagonist… CONTINUE READING
