Rather than eliciting excitatory (EPSPs) or inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (IPSPs) in a manner similar to glutamate and GABA, dopamine allows the gating of inputs via alteration of membrane properties and specific ion conductances (9). This enhanced or decreased response to other inputs affects the intensity, duration, and timing of output commensurate with environmental and homeostatic demands (10–12). Dopamine’s multivariate control is provided through five subtypes of seven transmembrane domain G-protein–coupled receptors (D1–D5), which based upon similarities in pharmacology, biochemistry, and amino acid homology are divided into two classes: D1-like-(D1, D5) and D2-like (D2, D3, D4) (13).

The anatomy of the input and output connections of the A8–A9 neurons and associated behaviors are most often considered in isolation with the basal ganglia nuclei and the thalamus. Moreover, wakefulness has been the ‘‘default’’ medium through which the behavioral correlates of dopamine dysfunction are thought to play out in this major pathway. It is less well established or understood what relevance this dopaminergic system might have to modulation of normal and pathological wake/sleep states such as RLS/periodic limb movements (PLMS) in sleep (32,33).

They are formed in the cholinergic mesopontine nuclei and propagate rostrally through the lateral geniculate and other thalamic nuclei to the occipital cortex (56). LDT and PPT nuclei project caudally via the ventral medulla to the alpha motor neurons in the spinal cord, where skeletal muscle tone is inhibited during REM sleep by the release of glycine (57). As NREM sleep transitions to REM sleep, tonic inhibition of REM-generating cholinergic pontomesencephalic nuclei by brainstem serotoninergic and adrenergic FIGURE 3 (Facing page) (A) During wakefulness, the hypocretin system is activated.
