Highly Specific Role of Hypocretin (Orexin) Neurons: Differential Activation as a Function of Diurnal Phase, Operant Reinforcement versus Operant Avoidance and Light Level.
Role of the Hypocretin (Orexin) Receptor 2 (Hcrt-r2) in the Regulation of Hypocretin Level and Cataplexy.
Human Narcolepsy Is Linked To Reduced Number, Size And Synaptic Bouton Density In Hypocretin-2 Labeled Neurons.
Narcolepsy is no longer a mysterious disease. In work reported this September, our group at UCLA and Mignot's group at Stanford independently identified abnormalities in human brains that pinpoint the cause of most human narcolepsy.. 2000.
