The cholinergic neurons of the laterodorsal and pedunculopontine tegmental neurons are thought to comprise an important portion of the ascending reticular activating system. More recent work has demonstrated that the neurons of this cell group also released a number of neruoactive peptides and can produce nitric oxide in response to increases in intracellular calcium. The release of NO from the nerve terminals of these cells within the thalamus varies with behavioural state, being much lower… Expand
