In projects 2 and 3 the pathways from forebrain sleep inducing regions will be traced to the brainstem region activated and inactivated in sleep apnea, focusing on regions controlling upper airway muscle tone. These studies will use anatomical tract tracing techniques, thermal activation of sleep controlling neurons and unit recording in the posterior hypothalamus, periaqueductal gray and medulla of unrestrained animals. In projects 4 and 5 we will determine which amino acid and monoamine transmitters mediate the suppression of muscle tone in airway dilator motoneurons during REM and non-REM sleep.

One recently identified site of chemoreception is the medullary raphe nuclei (MRN) whose role in the control of breathing during awake and asleep states remains speculative. Accordingly, to study chemosensitivity and the role of the RTN and MRN in the control of breathing, we will implant microtubules into these nuclei of goats to: a) create a focal acidosis by dialysis of mock cerebrospinal fluid with different PCO2's, or b) induce neuronal dysfunction through injection of glutamate or serotonin receptor antagonists or agonists, or a neurotoxin.
