Abstract

Thalamic reticularis, thalamocortical, and cortical cells participate in the 7-14-hz spindling rhythm of early sleep and the slower delta rhythms of deeper sleep, with different firing patterns. In this case study, showing the interactions of intrinsic and synaptic properties, a change in the conductance of one kind of cell effectively rewires the thalamocortical circuit, leading to the transition from the spindling to the delta rhythm. The two rhythms make different uses of the fast (GABA(A)) and slow (GABA(B)) inhibition generated by the thalamic reticularis cells.
