Topographical organisation of non-cholinergic neurons in the pedunculopontine nucleus

Abstract:

The pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) is a brainstem structure involved in motor control, sleep and arousal. The boundaries of the PPN are defined by its cholinergic neurons, but it also contains GABAergic, glutamatergic and calcium-binding protein-positive neurons. To further understand the physiological roles of the PPN it is necessary to understand which neuronal subtypes are present in the PPN and how they are connected with other regions of the brain in normal and pathological conditions...
