Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine if GABA(B) receptors play a role in suppressing upper airway muscle tone in rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. The results reported herein indicate that GABA(B) receptors, acting in concert with GABA(A) and glycine receptors, play a role in mediating REM sleep atonia.
