- Changes in neuron activity in the dorsolateral part of the pons during stimulation of areas of the brainstem inhibiting movement and muscle toneL I Kiyashchenko
Laboratory for the Evolution of Sleep and Waking, I. M. Sechenov Institute of Evolutionary Physiology and Biochemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences, 44 Torez Prospekt, 194233 St. Petersburg, Russia
Neurosci Behav Physiol 31:641-6. 2001....
- Behavioral correlates of activity in identified hypocretin/orexin neuronsBoris Y Mileykovskiy
Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California 90095, USA
Neuron 46:787-98. 2005..Our findings suggest that these cells are activated during emotional and sensorimotor conditions similar to those that trigger cataplexy in narcoleptic animals...
- Muscle tone facilitation and inhibition after orexin-a (hypocretin-1) microinjections into the medial medullaBoris Y Mileykovskiy
Institute of Evolutionary Physiology and Biochemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences, St Petersburg 194223, Russia
J Neurophysiol 87:2480-9. 2002..Loss of OX function may, therefore, disturb both muscle tone facilitatory and inhibitory processes at the medullary level...
- Release of hypocretin (orexin) during waking and sleep statesLyudmila I Kiyashchenko
Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences and Brain Research Institute, University of California Los Angeles School of Medicine, North Hills, California 91343, USA
J Neurosci 22:5282-6. 2002..Hcrt-1 release into CSF was 67% higher during AW than during QW. Elevated levels of Hcrt during REM sleep and AW are consistent with a role for Hcrt in the central programming of motor activity...
- Cessation of activity in red nucleus neurons during stimulation of the medial medulla in decerebrate ratsBoris Y Mileykovskiy
Veterans Administration, Greater Los Angeles Health System, Sepulveda, California, USA
J Physiol 545:997-1006. 2002..These two mechanisms acting synergistically may cause generalized motor inhibition during REM sleep and cataplexy...
- Identification of Hypocretin (Orexin) Cells In VivoBORIS MILEYKOVSKIY; Fiscal Year: 2005..A better understanding of the physiological and behavioral role of these cell groups would have implications for development of effective treatments for obesity, depression, narcolepsy and other sleep disorders. ..
