Sleep, Dreams, and States of Consciousness

An understanding of the brain basis of consciousness is one of the oldest dreams of neuroscientists and physicians. Although a knowledge of its subtleties is at a very early stage, we are now

Do REM (lucid) dreamed and executed actions share the same neural substrate

This paper addresses the correlation of dreamed and actual actions. This issue is related to the theory of neural simulation of action. The simulation theory postulates that, in general, covert

The Ongoing Search for the Neuronal Correlate of Consciousness

Progress in the analysis of the connectome of the brain, and the introduction of multisite recordings from the cerebral cortex of animals led to a revision of concepts in the field of cognitive neuroscience, emphasizing principles of distributed processing in recurrent networks with non-linear dynamics, self-organization, and coding in high-dimensional-state space.

A re-evaluation of the effects of lesions of the pontine tegmentum and locus coeruleus on phenomena of paradoxical sleep in the cat.

The conclusion drawn from these experiments and from a review of the literature is that the hypotheses stating that the locus coeruleus or other isolated nuclei of the pons are specifically concerned with the initiation of paradoxical sleep are not clearly supported by available evidence.

Evidence for the presence of eye movement potentials during paradoxical sleep in cats.

An inhibitory mechanism in the bulbar reticular formation.

In the experiments to be reported, this inhibitory influence has been demonstrated by observing the effect of bulbar stimulation upon reflexes, upon decerebrate rigidity and upon responses evoked from the motor cortex.
