Formación Reticular by Erick Jimar Chambi Machaca on Prezi

This was based upon the observation that the lesioning of the rostral reticular formation induces a hypersomnia in the cat brain. The ARAS is composed of several neuronal circuits connecting the dorsal part of the posterior midbrain and anterior pons to the cerebral cortex via distinct pathways that project through the thalamus and hypothalamus.

This study has led to the idea that the caudal portion inhibits the rostral flrmacion of the reticular formation.

Fewer cholinergic neurons of the pons and midbrain send projections to the forebrain along the ventral pathway, bypassing the thalamus [19, 20]. The main function of the ARAS is to modify and potentiate thalamic and cortical function such that electroencephalogram EEG desynchronization ensues. Sagittal division reveals more morphological distinctions. 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.

The ascending sensory tract conveying information in the opposite direction is known as the spinoreticular tract. The raphe nuclei are the place of synthesis of the neurotransmitter serotoninwhich plays an important role in mood regulation.

Clinical Neuroanatomy and Neuroscience. Neurons of the reticular formation, particularly those of the ascending reticular activating system, play a crucial role in maintaining behavioral arousal and consciousness. Inferior cerebellar peduncle Vestibulocerebellar tract Medial longitudinal fasciculus Vestibulospinal tract Medial vestibulospinal tract Lateral vestibulospinal tract.

The reticular formation consists of more than small neural networks, with varied functions including the following:. Intermediolateral nucleus Posterior thoracic nucleus. Spinocerebellar dorsal ventral Spinothalamic lateral anterior Posterolateral Spinotectal.


Reticular formation

The neurotransmitters that these neurons release include dopaminenorepinephrineserotoninhistamineacetylcholineand glutamate. 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 rehicular or REM, but not both.

First the ascending somatic and auditory paths; second, a series of “ascending relays from the reticular formation of the lower brain stem through the midbrain tegmentumsubthalamus and hypothalamus to the internal capsule. As discussed in Chapter 6, these neurons project widely throughout the brain from restricted collections of cell bodies. Cats with mesancephalic retocular to the ARAS entered into a deep sleep and displayed corresponding brain waves.

The RAS is a complex structure consisting of several different circuits including the four monoaminergic pathways A diffusion tensor imaging study”.

Allan Hobson states in his 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. The Journal of Comparative Neurology. Trapezoid body Trigeminal lemniscus Dorsal trigeminal tract Ventral trigeminal tract Medial lemniscus Lateral lemniscus Medial longitudinal fasciculus Vestibulo-oculomotor fibers Anterior trigeminothalamic tract Central tegmental reticulaf.

Current Opinion in Neurobiology. Cortical arousal also takes advantage of dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra SNventral tegmenti area VTA and the periaqueductal grey area PAG. Orexin neurons are located in the lateral hypothalamus.

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 As a result, the ARAS still functions during inhibitory periods of hypnosis.

The reticular formation is essential for governing some of the basic functions of higher organisms and is one of the phylogenetically oldest portions of the brain.


This section needs expansion with: Posterior column-medial lemniscus pathway: The regulation of sleep and wakefulness involves formxcion regions and reticukar subtypes in the brain.

Direct electrical stimulation of the ARAS produces pain responses in cats and educes verbal reports of pain in humans. They are organized in a widely projecting manner, much like the monoamines Chapter 6and innervate all of the components of the ARAS.

Here we report that glutamate-releasing neurons of the supramammillary region SuMvglut2 produce sustained behavioral and EEG arousal when chemogenetically activated. The original functional differentiation was a division of caudal and rostral. The thalamic projection is dominated by cholinergic neurons originating from the pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus of pons and midbrain PPT and laterodorsal tegmental nucleus of pons and midbrain LDT nuclei [17, 18].

The ascending reticular activating system is an important enabling factor for the state of consciousness. Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences.

Locus coeruleus Related noradrenergic brainstem nuclei. The physiological change from a state of deep sleep to wakefulness is reversible and mediated by the ARAS.

The ARAS also helps mediate transitions from rsticular wakefulness to periods of high attention. Excitation of the ARAS did not depend on further signal propagation through the cerebellar circuits, as the same results were obtained following decerebellation and decortication.

Magoun used this principle to demonstrate, on two separate areas of the brainstem of a cat, how to produce wakefulness from sleep.
