Sleep-wake related discharge properties of basal forebrain neurons recorded with micropipettes in head-fixed rats.

Abstract

The basal forebrain has been shown to play an important role in cortical activation of wake and paradoxical sleep (PS), yet has also been posited to play a role in slow wave sleep (SWS). In an effort to determine whether these different roles may be fulfilled by different cell groups, including cholinergic and GABAergic cells, we recorded from 123 units in… (More)
