An estimated 40 million Americans and millions of others worldwide suffer from some type of sleep disruption or disorder, and these numbers are rapidly increasing. As biomedical technologies advance our understanding of sleep, a wave of developments in sleep research and the emergence of new technologies offer hope and help for a good nightas sleep. Sleep: Circuits and Functions discusses the major discoveries related to the circuits responsible for slow wave sleep, REM sleep, narcolepsy, and the possible role of sleep in memory and developmental processes. World-renowned researcher Pierre-HervAc Luppi and a panel of expert contributors highlight advances in sleep research obtained by means of promising technologies. Data obtained by differential gene expression analysis, transgenic mice, and functional imaging is presented, as well as theoretical concepts on the mechanisms regulating sleep. Updating our knowledge of the strides made in sleep research, this comprehensive book also identifies future research opportunities in this growing field. It is an essential resource for medical professionals and researchers who aim to finally put sleep disorders to bed.toxic lesions of this structure induced a decrease in PS quantities and an increase in muscle tone during PS.35 Further, we ... nuclei directly project to the trigeminal motor nucleus.37, 38 It has been shown in cats following induction of PS by carbachol ... the Mc25 or the pedunculopontine tegmental (PPT) and laterodorsal tegmental cholinergic nuclei (LDT).49 The PPT and LDT ...
