  Neuroscience Institute:   Neuroscience Institute Seminar --- "Integration of Circadian Timekeeping and Sleep Need in a Newly Identified Synaptic Circuit The sleep/wake cycle is thought to be controlled by two main processes: a circadian clock that primarily regulates timing of arousal and a homeostatic mechanism that regulates duration of arousal according to sleep need. Although the mechanisms underlying circadian clock function have been studied in detail, the homeostatic process by which sleep need is sensed and discharged remains unknown. We previously reported that ppk neurons are rare among arousal-promoting neurons in their ability to drive waking and subsequent homeostatic recovery sleep. Here we use thermogenetically-controlled sleep behavior and trans-synaptic mapping to identify putative postsynaptic effectors of ppk-driven sleep homeostasis. The neurons we identify, which we name D11, have several expected features of a sleep homeostat. First, they are anatomically coupled to synaptic output of wake-promoting ppk neurons. Second, reducing electrical activity or synaptic output of D11 neurons after sleep deprivation reduces recovery sleep. Third, increasing D11 neuronal activity acutely increases sleep. Collectively our results suggest a simple model in which wake-promoting ppk neurons trigger a biphasic process in postsynaptic sleep-promoting D11 neurons: acute inhibition followed by homeostatic upregulation. Behaviorally this translates into waking activity that drives sleep need. Importantly, both ppk and D11 neurons also lie adjacent to projections from the circadian clock network. Thus, the ppk/D11 circuit may represent not only a major locus for homeostatic control of sleep but also the first identified physical link between the homeostat and the clock in the classic two process model for sleep/wake regulation." , William Joiner, PhD Associate Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, Computational Neuroscience in Computational Biomedicine University of California San Diego San Diego, CA , 3:00 PM, Science Building, SB 1220 - Contact Gabriela Serrano at 212-263-5410 or at Gabriela.Serrano@nyulangone.org

  Neuroscience Institute:   Neuroscience Institute Seminar --- "Reconstructing the Sleep Homeostat through Statistical Inference of Fruit Fly Sleep-wake State Transitions: Sleep is an indispensable and tightly regulated behavior exhibited by animals across phyla. One of the hallmarks of the behavior is the overwhelming need to sleep in the aftermath of sleep loss. The unmistakable response to sleep deficit is thought to be generated by a network of neurochemical signals, collectively called the sleep homeostat. Despite decades of research, however, much remains unknown about the organization and operational principles of the homeostat. The lack of knowledge about homeostasis is a major hurdle in our understanding of sleep regulation. We address these open questions by constructing a functional description of the sleep homeostat in the genetically tractable fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. By examining statistical properties of individual sleep-wake events in mutants and transgenics, we demonstrate that the fruit fly sleep homeostat can be described in terms of two functional units---one that adjusts sleep duration and the other that controls sleep pressure. We propose that the unit that controls sleep duration is composed of four mutually inhibitive pathways mediating sleep to wake transitions. Additional analyses reveal that the unit that controls sleep pressure generates strong correlations among individual sleep events. The magnitude of these correlations predicts the fraction of sleep recovered after deprivation, suggesting that sleep pressure in Drosophila is encoded in temporal correlations among its sleep events. These findings lay the groundwork for a unified model of the sleep homeostat." , Sheyum Syed, PhD Assistant Professor University of California San Diego , 3:00 PM, Science Building, SB 103 - Contact Gabriela Serrano at 2122635410 or at Gabriela.Serrano@nyulangone.org
