    • Basal forebrain control of wakefulness and cortical rhythms 

      Anaclet, Christelle; Pedersen, Nigel P.; Ferrari, Loris L.; Venner, Anne; Bass, Caroline E.; Arrigoni, Elda; Fuller, Patrick M. (Nature Pub. Group, 2015)
      Wakefulness, along with fast cortical rhythms and associated cognition, depend on the basal forebrain (BF). BF cholinergic cell loss in dementia and the sedative effect of anti-cholinergic drugs have long implicated these ...
    • GABAergic parafacial zone is a medullary slow–wave–sleep promoting center 

      Anaclet, Christelle; Ferrari, Loris; Arrigoni, Elda; Bass, Caroline E.; Saper, Clifford B.; Lu, Jun; Fuller, Patrick M. (2014)
      Work in animals and humans suggest the existence of a slow–wave sleep (SWS) promoting/EEG synchronizing center in the mammalian lower brainstem. While sleep–active GABAergic neurons in the medullary parafacial zone (PZ) ...
