State-dependent control of lumbar motoneurons by the hypocretinergic system.

Abstract

Neurons in the lateral hypothalamus (LH) that synthesize hypocretins (Hcrt-1 and Hcrt-2) are active during wakefulness and excite lumbar motoneurons. Because hypocretinergic cells also discharge during phasic periods of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, we sought to examine their action on the activity of motoneurons during this state. Accordingly, cat lumbar… (More)
