Sarter M, Bruno JP (2000) Cortical cholinergic inputs mediating arousal, attentional processing and dreaming: Differential afferent regulation of the basal forebrain by telencephalic and brainstem afferents. Neuroscience 95(4):933-952. doi: 10.1016/s0306-4522(99)00487-x
Objective: To examine the cortical cholinergic inputs mediating arousal, specific attentional functions and rapid eye movement sleep-associated dreaming.
Summary: The incorporation of persistent changes in cortical information processing as a result of paired stimulation of cholinergic and sensory inputs into current theories about the cognitive functions of cortical ACh awaits more information, particularly with reference to the temporal dynamic properties of the effects of endogenously released ACh on cortical information processing.
