Abstract

Pontogeniculooccipital (PGO) waves are recorded during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep from the pontine reticular formation. 2. PGO wave-like field potentials can also be recorded in many other parts of the brain in addition to the pontine reticular formation, but their distribution is different in different species. Species differences are due to variation in species-specific postsynaptic target sites of the pontine PGO generator. 3. The triggering neurons of the pontine PGO wave generator are located within the caudolateral peribrachial and the locus subceruleus areas. 4. The transferring neurons of the pontine PGO generator are located within the cholinergic neurons of the laterodorsal tegmentum and the pedunculopontine tegmentum. 5. The triggering and transferring neurons of the pontine PGO wave generator are modulated by aminergic, cholinergic, nitroxergic, GABA-ergic, and glycinergic cells of the brainstem. The PGO system is also modulated by suprachiasmatic, amygdaloid, vestibular, and brainstem auditory cell groups.
