  • cholinergic nuclei
  • This in turn requires a detailed description of cholinergic nuclei in the species under study. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • To improve our understanding of the role of neurosteroids in cholinergic systems during normal and pathological aging, we need to determine whether there is specific regionalization of neurosteroids, and we need to investigate the relationship between neurosteroid concentrations in cholinergic nuclei and age-related sleep and memory impairments.

  • 7 Some arousal centers are active primarily during wakefulness, with cholinergic nuclei also active during rapid eye movement sleep ( fig. 1 ). (asahq.org)
  • basalis
  • Côte, P.Y., and Parent, A., 1992, Calbindin D-28k and choline acetyltransferase are expressed by different neuronal populations in pedunculopontine nucleus but not in nucleus basalis in squirrel monkeys. (springer.com)

  • role
  • Although initially considered to function as a relay nucleus within ascending activating systems, increasing evidence on the neuronal heterogeneity of the PPN and its local synaptic organization, suggest that this high level of connectivity with functionally distinct neuronal systems underlies an integrative function rather than a role as a simple relay nucleus.

  • known
  • Among these newer surgical therapies, electrical stimulation of specific brain nuclei, known commonly as deep brain stimulation (DBS), has become an increasingly popular alternative strategy to traditional pharmacological treatment. (frontiersin.org)
