Functional Interactions Between MCHergic and Dopaminergic Neurons: Role in the Control of Wakefulness and Sleep
TLDR
Indirect evidence strongly suggests that functional interactions between the MCHergic and DAergic systems play an important role in the control of behavioral states and in the regulation of different aspects of REM sleep.
Dopaminergic Transmission and Wake-Promoting Effects of Central Nervous System Stimulants
TLDR
Dopaminergic agents are widely used in clinical practice to modulate alertness in sleep and other disorders involving disrupted cortical activation and further work on their mechanism of action is warranted.
Dopamine and Sleep
TLDR
The dopamine (DA)-ergic neurons are primarily localized in the substantia nigra and ventral tegmental area of the brainstem and may have an indirect modulatory role, which however needs confirmation.
The Effects of Melanin-Concentrating Hormone on Neurotransmitter Systems Involved in the Generation and Maintenance of Wakefulness
TLDR
The REM sleep-inducing and sleep-facilitating effect of MCH is at least partly related to the deactivation of monoaminergic, glutamatergic, and cholinergic (W-on) neurons.
Effect of dopamine D4 receptor agonists on sleep architecture in rats
Sleep and Motor Control by a Basal Ganglia Circuit
TLDR
A key role of the STN-SNr basal ganglia pathway in sleep generation is demonstrated and a novel circuit mechanism linking sleep and motor control is revealed.
Novel biochemical manipulation of brain serotonin reveals a role of serotonin in the circadian rhythm of sleep–wake cycles
TLDR
The results suggest that 5‐HT with a rapid turnover rate plays an important role in the circadian rhythm of sleep–wake cycles.

TLDR
Comparative analysis of changes in WSC of amphibians and mammals in response to administration of dopamine and its agonists allows thinking that the role of the dopaminergic neurotransmitter system in regulation of the vertebrate WSC certainly consists in that the low level of activity of this system facilitates development of sleep (catalepsy), whereas the high level provides reaction of arousal and is actively included in the system providing stress-reaction.
Control of sleep and wakefulness.
TLDR
Genetic studies suggest that brain mechanisms controlling waking and NREM sleep are strongly conserved throughout evolution, underscoring their enormous importance for brain function.

Emerging views of dopamine in modulating sleep/wake state from an unlikely source: PD.
TLDR
This issue of Neurology includes one study documenting daytime sleepiness with the D2–D3 receptor agonist ropinirole in drug-naive control subjects and three investigating the pathophysiologic basis of like decrements seen in the face of DA deficiency accompanying PD.
Serotonin at the Laterodorsal Tegmental Nucleus Suppresses Rapid-Eye-Movement Sleep in Freely Behaving Rats
TLDR
The data suggest that in vivo 5-HT at the LDT nuclei suppresses REM sleep expression and total REM phasic activity was reduced because of less REM sleep after 5- HT.
Brainstem neuromodulation and REM sleep
TLDR
A group of cholinergic neurons at the junction of the pons and midbrain, in the laterodorsal and pedunculopontine tegmental nuclei, begins to discharge before the onset of this phase of sleep, and is modulated by inhibitory and REM-suppressive projections.
Prominent Burst Firing of Dopaminergic Neurons in the Ventral Tegmental Area during Paradoxical Sleep
TLDR
Challenging the traditional view that dopamine is the only aminergic group not involved in sleep physiology, this study provides an alternative perspective that may be crucial for understanding the physiological function of PS and dream mentation.
Differential effects of dopamine D-1 and D-2 receptor antagonist antipsychotics on sleep-wake patterns in the rat.
TLDR
Concomitant enhancement of both total sleep and REM appears to be a peculiar feature which clearly distinguishes DA D-1 antagonists from the other DA receptor blockers.
Adenosinergic modulation of rat basal forebrain neurons during sleep and waking: neuronal recording with microdialysis
TLDR
It is suggested that in naturally awake and sleeping animals, adenosine exerts tonic inhibitory influences on BF neurons, supporting the hypothesized role ofAdenosine in sleep regulation.
Wake-Promoting Actions of Dopamine D1 and D2 Receptor Stimulation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that dopamine contributes to the alert waking state via actions of D1 and D2 receptors, and a potential involvement of dopamine receptors in the induction of high-arousal states, including stress is suggested.
Role of norepinephrine in the regulation of rapid eye movement sleep
TLDR
The present knowledge that has been reviewed in this manuscript suggests that neurons in the brain stem are responsible for controlling this state and presence of excess norepinephrine in thebrain does not allow its generation.
128 BASIC MECHANISMS OF SLEEP : NEW EVIDENCE ON THE NEUROANATOMY AND NEUROMODULATION OF THE NREM-REM CYCLE
TLDR
New data is reviewed suggesting the involvement of many more chemically specific neuronal groups than can be accommodated by the model of reciprocal aminergic-cholinergic interaction and this chapter extends its purview to the way in which the brainstem interacts with the forebrain.
