The main function of the ARAS is to modify and potentiate thalamic and cortical function such that electroencephalogram EEG desynchronization ensues. Formatio reticularis labeled at left. The RAS is a complex structure consisting of several different circuits including the four monoaminergic pathways Moving caudally from the rostral midbrainat the site of the rostral pons and the midbrain, the medial RF becomes less prominent, and the lateral RF becomes more prominent.

The medial RF is large and has retichlar ascending and descending fibers, and is surrounded by the lateral reticular formation.

Anatomy of the pons. This study has led to the idea that the caudal portion inhibits the rostral portion of the reticular formation. The hypothalamic projection involves erticular neurons of the locus coeruleus LC and serotoninergic neurons of the dorsal and median raphe nuclei DRwhich pass through the lateral hypothalamus and reach axons of the histaminergic tubero-mamillary nucleus TMNtogether forming a pathway extending into the forebrain, cortex and hippocampus.

The ARAS represented diffuse, nonspecific pathways that, working through the midline and intralaminar thalamic nuclei, could change activity of the entire neocortex, and thus, this system was suggested initially as a general arousal system to natural stimuli and the critical system underlying wakefulness Moruzzi and Magoun ; Lindsley et al.

It was found in a recent study in the rat that the state of wakefulness is mostly maintained by the ascending glutamatergic projection from the parabrachial nucleus and precoeruleus regions to the basal forebrain and then relayed to the cerebral cortex Fuller et al.

Trigeminal motor nucleus Facial motor nucleus GSE: Cats with mesancephalic interruptions to the ARAS entered into a deep sleep and displayed corresponding brain waves. The direct electrical stimulation of the brain could simulate electrocortical relays. Interneuron Alpha motor neuron Onuf’s nucleus Gamma motor neuron. The reticulospinal tracts works with the other three pathways to give a coordinated control of movement, including delicate manipulations.

The functions of the reticular formation are modulatory and premotor. 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]. Revisiting the reticular activating system”.

Views Read Edit View history. Here we report that glutamate-releasing neurons of the supramammillary region SuMvglut2 produce sustained behavioral and EEG arousal reticulag chemogenetically activated. The reticular formation is not anatomically well defined because it includes neurons located in diverse parts of the brain.

The medial system includes the reticulospinal pathway and the vestibulospinal pathwayand this system provides control of posture. The gigantocellular nuclei are involved in motor coordination.

Mass lesions in brainstem ARAS nuclei can cause severe alterations in level of consciousness e. The corticospinal and the rubrospinal tract pathways belong to the lateral system which provides fine control of movement.

The ascending reticular activating system is an important enabling factor for the state of consciousness.


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

Reticular formation

Locus coeruleus Related noradrenergic brainstem nuclei. The reticular formation is a set of interconnected nuclei that are located throughout the brainstem.

Fundamental neuroscience 4th ed. They included glutamatergic, cholinergic, noradrenergic, dopaminergic, serotonergic, histaminergic, and orexinergic systems for review, see Lin et al. Thalamic reticular nucleus Intralaminar nucleusincluding the centromedian nucleus.

The reticulospinal tractsalso known as the descending or anterior reticulospinal tracts, are extrapyramidal motor tracts that descend from the reticular formation [37] in two tracts to act on the motor neurons supplying the trunk and proximal limb flexors and extensors.
