GABA and glutamate neurons in the VTA regulate sleep and wakefulnessColor_dress_117

Xiao Yu et al.
Nature Neuroscience | December 17, 2018
We screened for novel circuits in the mouse brain that promote wakefulness. Chemogenetic activation experiments and electroencephalogram recordings pointed to glutamatergic/nitrergic (NOS1) and GABAergic neurons in the...


A Hypothalamic Switch for REM and Non-REM SleepColor_dress_99

Kai-Siang Chen et al.
Neuron | February 22, 2018
Rapid eye movement (REM) and non-REM (NREM) sleep are controlled by specific neuronal circuits. Here we show that galanin-expressing GABAergic neurons in the dorsomedial hypothalamus (DMH) comprise separate...



Circuit-based interrogation of sleep controlColor_dress_72

Franz Weber et al.
Nature | October 5, 2016
Sleep is a fundamental biological process observed widely in the animal kingdom, but the neural circuits generating sleep remain poorly understood. Understanding the brain mechanisms controlling sleep requires the...
