Reticular formation

Moruzzi and Magoun first investigated the neural components regulating the brain’s sleep-wake mechanisms in The medial system includes the reticulospinal pathway and the vestibulospinal pathwayand this system provides control of posture. Intermediolateral nucleus Posterior thoracic nucleus. The ascending sensory tract conveying information in the opposite direction is known as the spinoreticular tract.

The gigantocellular nuclei are involved in motor coordination. The Journal of Comparative Neurology. Physiologists had proposed that some structure deep within the brain controlled mental wakefulness and alertness. The reticular formation is divided into three columns: Out from this area spring the cranial nerves, including the very important vagus nerve.

Cats with formxcion interruptions to the ARAS entered into a deep sleep and displayed corresponding brain waves. A diffusion tensor imaging study”. Conversely, up-regulated electrical coupling would increase synchronization of fast rhythms that reticulxr lead to increased arousal and REM sleep drive.

As discussed in Chapter 6, these neurons project widely throughout the brain from restricted collections of cell bodies. The neurotransmitters that these neurons release include dopaminenorepinephrineserotoninhistamineacetylcholineand glutamate.

Archived from the original on 4 May Anatomy of the pons. Is there a cortical integrating mechanism? The Lateral RF is known for its ganglions and areas of interneurons around the cranial nerveswhich serve to mediate their characteristic reflexes and functions.


The Psychiatric Clinics of North America. It has been described as being either too complex to study or an undifferentiated part of the brain with no organization at all. The reticular activating system begins in the dorsal part of the posterior midbrain and anterior pons, continues into reticjlar diencephalon, and then divides into two parts reaching the thalamus and hypothalamus, which then project into the cerebral cortex Fig.

Gracile nucleus Cuneate nucleus Accessory cuneate nucleus. Finally, Magoun recorded potentials within the medial portion of the brain stem and discovered that auditory stimuli directly fired portions of the reticular activating system.

A Foundation for Clinical Neuroscience 2nd ed. Thalamic reticular nucleus Intralaminar nucleusincluding the centromedian nucleus. The reticular formation is not anatomically well defined because it includes neurons located in diverse parts of the brain.

Clinical Neuroanatomy and Neuroscience. The raphe nuclei form a ridge in the middle of the reticular formation, and, directly to its periphery, there is a division called reticulwr medial reticular formation.

Formación reticular | Flashcards

The ascending reticular activating system is an important enabling factor for the state of consciousness. There are several potential factors that may adversely influence the development of the ascending reticular activating system:. Parabrachial and pedunculopontine glutamatergic arousal system Retrograde tracers from the BF have consistently identified one brainstem site of input that is not part of the classical monoaminergic ascending arousal system: Neurons of the reticular formation, particularly those of the ascending reticular activating system, play a crucial role in maintaining behavioral arousal and consciousness.

Locus coeruleus Related noradrenergic brainstem nuclei. Human Neuroanatomy 2nd ed.

Reticular formation – Wikipedia

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Rexed laminae Central gelatinous substance Gray commissure. The ARAS also helps mediate transitions from relaxed wakefulness to periods of high attention.

Low voltage fast burst brain waves EEG desynchronization are associated with wakefulness and REM sleep which are electrophysiologically similar ; high voltage slow waves are found during feticular sleep.


Revisiting the reticular activating system”. The History, Physical, and Laboratory Examinations. Retrieved from ” https: Formatio reticularis grisea and formatio reticularis alba labeled at left. More recently, the medullary parafacial zone PZ adjacent to the reticulag nerve was identified as a sleep-promoting center on the basis of anatomical, electrophysiological and chemo- and optogenetic studies.

The physiological change from a state of deep sleep to wakefulness is reversible and mediated by the ARAS.

Interneuron Alpha motor neuron Onuf’s nucleus Fomracion motor neuron. The reticular formation consists of more than small neural networks, with varied functions including the following:.

Eric Kandel describes the reticular formation as being organized in a similar manner to the intermediate gray matter of the spinal cord. Next, the significance of this newly retciular relay system was evaluated by placing lesions in the medial and lateral portions of the front of the midbrain.

Superior salivary nucleus Inferior salivary nucleus. Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy. 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.

Allan Hobson states in retucular book The Reticular Formation Revisited that the name is an etymological vestige from the fallen era of the aggregate field theory in the neural sciences.
