- Altered sleep latency and arousal regulation in mice lacking norepinephrineMelissa S Hunsley
Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Department of Biochemistry, Box 357370, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195 7370, USA
Pharmacol Biochem Behav 78:765-73. 2004..The results presented here suggest that NE promotes wakefulness during transitions between sleep and wake under conditions involving mild stress and SD, but not under baseline circumstances...
- Behavioral and sleep/wake characteristics of mice lacking norepinephrine and hypocretinM S Hunsley
Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Department of Biochemistry, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA
Genes Brain Behav 5:451-7. 2006..Sleep latency in response to saline or amphetamine injections was reduced in Dbh-KO and DKO mice relative to other groups. Behavioral arrests, that are frequent in Hcrt-KO mice, were not exacerbated in DKO mice...
- Norepinephrine-deficient mice exhibit normal sleep-wake states but have shorter sleep latency after mild stress and low doses of amphetamineMelissa S Hunsley
Howard Hughes Medical Institute, University of Washington, Seattle 98195 7370, USA
Sleep 26:521-6. 2003..Mice lacking the ability to make norepinephrine (NE) were used to investigate how NE may be involved in regulating sleep and sleep latency under normal conditions and as a response to mild stress or varying doses of amphetamine...
