Abstract

Cooling of the medial aspects of the midbrain tegmentum produces high voltage EEG rhythms and behavioral depression. This same procedure carried out in cats pretreated with parachlorophenylalanine between post-drug hours 20 and 60 produces a state exhibiting the tonic and phasic EEG, EOG, EMG and gross behavioral criteria of the paradoxical episode of sleep.
