Summary: Previous animal studies have identified the cholinergic basal forebrain (CBF) as a crucial structure in sleep-wake cycle modulation and lesion or inactivation of the BF has been found to increase delta electroencephalogram activity, disturb behavioral arousal, and reduce sleep. They reference Kaur et al. using 192-IgG-SAP to lesion the CBF to examine the role of these neurons in sleep behavior.
