High-Threshold Ca2+ channels behind gamma band activity in the pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN)
(American Physiological Society and The Physiological Society, 2015-07)
The pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) is part of the Reticular Activating System, and active during waking and REM sleep. Previous results showed that all PPN cells plateau at gamma frequencies and intrinsic membrane oscillations ...
Mechanism behind gamma band activity in the pedunculopontine nucleus
The pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN), part of the reticular activating system, modulates waking and paradoxical sleep. During waking and paradoxical sleep, EEG responses are characterized by low-amplitude, high-frequency ...
Gamma band activity in the developing parafascicular nucleus
(American Physiological Society, 2012-02)
The parafascicular nucleus (Pf) receives cholinergic input from the pedunculopontine nucleus, part of the reticular activating system involved in waking and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, and sends projections to the ...
Refinement of neuronal synchronization with gamma oscillations in the medial prefrontal cortex after adolescence
(Public Library of Science, 2013-04)
The marked anatomical and functional changes taking place in the medial prefrontal cortex (PFC) during adolescence set grounds for the high incidence of neuropsychiatric disorders with adolescent onset. Although circuit ...
