165 confirmed the existence of hcrt-receptors (hcrtr) in the LC. Although hcrtr2 mRNA was not detected in the LC, hcrtr1 mRNA was highly expressed and, furthermore, implicated in the actions of hcrt1. For example, local administration of hcrt1 in the LC suppressed rapid eye movement (REM) sleep in a dose-dependent manner and increased wakefulness at the expense of deep slow-wave sleep. Iontophoretic application of hcrt1 was also shown to enhance the firing rate of LC neurons in vivo. 166 Extracellular recordings of the spontaneous activity of rat LC neurons revealed an increase of firing rate in response to application of orexin A over the range of 30 nM to 3 ␮M.

Ennis and Aston-Jones147 showed that single-pulse electrical stimulation of the PGi synaptically activated a large majority of LC neurons (70% to 80%). This excitatory action was further found 32 K. L. Simpson and R. C. S. 148 Findings indicated that the N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist, AP7, did not block the LC response to PGi stimulation, whereas the kainate receptor antagonists, kynurenic acid and ␥ -d-glutamylglycine, completely blocked the excitatory effect. 99 further demonstrated that projections from the PGi utilize the neurotransmitter glutamate.

Large, multipolar cells in the ventral LC were found to innervate the spinal cord and cerebellum. Given the broad projections of the LC, several studies were undertaken to examine the extent to which individual neurons provide axon collaterals to different brain regions. In these investigations, relative proportions of double labeling were assessed as a means of determining the propensity for neurons to innervate more than one structure. Using HRP and [3 H]N-acetyl-WGA, Steindler144 performed paired injections of cerebellum and visual cortex, or cerebellum and hippocampus.
