People often sleep deprive themselves voluntarily for social and lifestyle reasons. Animals also appear to stay awake longer as a result of their natural curiosity to explore novel environments and interact socially with ...
Behavioural and neuronal activation after microinjections of AMPA and NMDA into the perifornical lateral hypothalamus in rats The perifornical lateral hypothalamic area (PeFLH), which houses orexin/hypocretin (OX) neurons, is thought to play an important role in arousal, feeding, and locomotor activity. The present study examined behavioural ...
Role of polysialylated neural cell adhesion molecule in rapid eye movement sleep regulation in rats Recent evidence suggests that synaptic plasticity occurs during homeostatic processes including sleep-wake regulation, although underlying mechanisms are not well understood. Polysialylated neural cell adhesion molecule ...
