Cholinergic neurons of the basal forebrain mediate biochemical and electrophysiological mechanisms underlying sleep homeostasis.

Kalinchuk A, Porkka-Heiskanen T, McCarley R, Basheer R (2015) Cholinergic neurons of the basal forebrain mediate biochemical and electrophysiological mechanisms underlying sleep homeostasis. Eur J Neurosci 41:182-195. doi: 10.1111/ejn.12766

Summary: Previous work has indicated that non-rapid eye movement during recovery sleep after sleep deprivation requires cholinergic neurons in the BF. The authors examined how BF cholinergic neurons affect the levels of HSP markers during sleep deprivation. Rats received 230-ng injections of 192-IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01) into the horizontal limb of the diagonal band/substantia innominata/ magnocellular preoptic area. The results indicate that cholinergic neurons in the BF are important for regulating the biochemical and EEG mechanisms that contribute to HSP.
