The serotonergic system plays a key role in the regulation of brain states, and many of the known features of serotonergic neurons appear to match this function. Midbrain raphe nuclei provide a diffuse projection to all regions of the forebrain, and raphe neurons exhibit a slow metronome-like activity that sets the ambient levels of serotonin across the sleep-wake cycle. Serotonergic cells have also been implicated, however, in a variety of more specific functions that can hardly be related to… CONTINUE READING
