Formación reticular

The direct electrical stimulation of the brain could simulate electrocortical relays. This was based upon the observation that the lesioning of the rostral reticular formation induces a hypersomnia in the cat brain. If coupling were down-regulated, there would be a corresponding decrease in higher-frequency synchronization gamma band.

The raphe nuclei form a ridge in the middle of the reticular formation, and, directly to its periphery, there is a division called the medial reticular formation. Surface Cerebellopontine angle Superior medullary velum Sulcus limitans Medial eminence Facial colliculus.

Reticular formation

The reticulospinal tracts are involved mainly in locomotion and postural control, although they do have other functions as well. The ascending reticular activating system ARASalso known as the extrathalamic control modulatory system or simply the reticular activating system RASis a set of connected nuclei in the brains of vertebrates that is responsible for regulating wakefulness and sleep-wake transitions.

The neurons of the reticular formation make up a complex set of networks in the core of the brainstem that stretch from the upper part of the midbrain to the lower part of the medulla oblongata. Interneuron Alpha motor neuron Onuf’s nucleus Gamma motor neuron. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Basic and clinical observations suggest that the caudal hypothalamus comprises a key node of the ascending arousal system, but the cell types underlying this are not fully understood.

The parvocellular nuclei regulate exhalation. The reticulospinal tractsalso known as the descending or anterior reticulospinal tracts, are extrapyramidal motor tracts that descend from the reticular formation [37] in two tracts to act on the motor neurons supplying the trunk and proximal limb flexors and extensors.

Fewer cholinergic neurons of the pons and midbrain send projections to the forebrain along the ventral pathway, bypassing the thalamus [19, 20].

The functions of the reticular formation are modulatory and premotor. The ascending reticular activating system ARAS is responsible for a sustained wakefulness state. Sagittal division reveals more morphological distinctions.


The Journal of Comparative Neurology. In contrast, lesioning of the more caudal portion of the reticular formation produces insomnia in cats. Juxtacellular recordings from pedunculopontine neurons have found that nearly all cholinergic neurons in this region, as well as many glutamatergic and GABAergic neurons, are most active during wake and REM sleep [25], although some of the latter neurons were maximally active during either wake or REM, but not both. Indeed, the ascending arousal system promotes wakefulness through a network composed of the monaminergic neurons in the locus coeruleus LChistaminergic neurons in the tuberomammilary nucleus TMNglutamatergic neurons in the parabrachial nucleus PB The ascending reticular activating system is an important enabling factor for the state of consciousness.

Archived from the original on The ARAS is composed of several neuronal circuits connecting the dorsal part of the posterior midbrain and anterior pons to the cerebral cortex formaciob distinct pathways that project through the thalamus and hypothalamus. As a result, the ARAS still functions during inhibitory periods of hypnosis. Cerebellopontine angle Superior medullary velum Sulcus limitans Medial eminence Facial colliculus.
