Cholinergic brainstem neurons modulate cortical gamma activity during slow oscillations

Abstract:

Cholinergic neurons in the rostral brainstem, including the pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN), are critical for switching behavioural state from sleep to wakefulness, and their presumed inactivity during sleep is thought to promote slow cortical rhythms that are characteristic of this state. However, it is possible that the diminished activity of cholinergic brainstem neurons during slow-wave sleep continues to have a functional impact upon ongoing cortical activity. Here we show that identified...
