Subject Arousal-Promoting Neurons of the Pedunculopontine Tegmental Nucleu
Summary

Wakefulness and behavioral arousal are driven by the coordinated activity of many types of neurons, but the specific nuclei and neurotransmitters are only partially understood. The pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus (PPT) contains a crucial population of cholinergic neurons and has long been considered an important brain region for the control of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. However, the PPT also contains separate populations of glutamatergic and GABAergic neurons, and just how these three types of neurons regulate sleep/wake behavior is unknown. We find that chemogenetic activation of the cholinergic PPT neurons suppresses slow EEG activity during non-REM sleep. In contrast, chemogenetic or optogenetic activation of the glutamatergic PPT neurons strongly increases wakefulness while inhibition has the opposite effect. The PPT glutamatergic neurons innervate many wake-promoting forebrain regions, and the wake-promoting effects seem mainly driven via projections to the lateral hypothalamus and basal forebrain.

Subject Roles of Reward and Inhibitory Control in Perceptual Learning
Summary

Perceptual learning (PL) refers to long-term performance improvement on a visual task. We have found that PL results from interactions between reinforcement and bottom-up signals from an exposed feature, irrespective of whether the feature is task-relevant or task-irrelevant (Watanabe et al, /Nature/, 2001; Watanabe et al, 2002, /Nature Neuroscience/; Seitz & Watanabe, /Nature/, 2003; Shibata et al, 2011, /Science/). We also found that PL is determined by inhibitory control (Tsushima et al, 2006, /Science/; Chang et al, 2014, /Current Biol/). That is, low-level visual plasticity is determined by high-level factors (Watanabe & Sasaki, 2015, /Ann Rev Psychol/).

Subject Night Watch in One Brain Hemisphere during Sleep Associated with the First-Night Effect in Humans
Summary

In human sleep studies, it has been well documented that healthy human subjects do not sleep well in the very first experimental sleep session, which is termed the first night effect. We found that the part of the brain, the default-mode network, in one hemisphere is kept more vigilant during sleep in a novel environment to act as a night watch which wakes a sleeper up at an alarming incident in a novel environment. The regional interhemispheric asymmetric sleep in human may play a similar protective role to that in marine mammals and birds.

Subject How do mice detect and catch their prey?
Summary

Appetitive behaviors, such as prey capture, play a fundamental role in animal survival. Little is known about the neural circuits that convert incentive sensory stimuli into neural signals to drive appetitive behaviors. Here we identified an excitatory subcortical neural pathway from the superior colliculus (SC) to the zona incerta to provoke predatory hunting. The SC neurons that form this pathway integrate prey-derived visual and vibrissal somatosensory cues. During hunting, these neurons send out neural signals temporally correlated with predatory attacks but not with feeding after prey capture. Synaptic inactivation of this pathway selectively blocks hunting for prey without impairing other sensory-guided behaviors. These data reveal a subcortical neural circuit specifically engaged in translating incentive sensory cues into neural signals to provoke appetitive behaviors.

Title Macrophages and osteoclasts in the regulation of haematopoietic niches
Speaker Dr. Stuart Fraser

Venue Igaku Gakkei-to Room 483
Abstract Haematopoiesis, or “the crafting of the blood”, begins in the yolk sac then moves to various locations throughout the developing embryo until the bones form and a life-long niche for blood production is established. We have found specialised macrophage populations playing roles in the haematopoietic niches throughout development and during physiological stress. In the yolk sac, we have identified a previously unreported macrophage population residing on the outermost layer which is developmentally regulated and may re-model the yolk sac absorptive epithelial layer, which in turn stimulates haematopoiesis. In the bone marrow, we have focused on exploring the interactions between central macrophages and the erythroblasts which surround them, in multicellular structures termed erythroblastic islands. Detailed analyses of erythroblastic islands at the nanometer scale have revealed cell-cell interactions and developmental pathways that had not previously been observed. This led us to ask whether all bones are equally able to support blood production. In exploring this, we have found that anaemic stress leads to profound changes in osteoclast gene expression demonstrating that specialised macrophages play important roles in establishing and maintaining the haematopoietic niche throughout life.
