Description

The locus coeruleus is one of the main source of noradrenaline projections into the forebrain. The neurotransmitter noradrenaline is important modulators of sleep/wakefulness, learning & memory, attention and reward (Farrar et al., 2018).

The locus coeruleus sends long-range projections to the olfactory bulb, subpallium, pretectum, posterior tuberculum, hypothalamus, optic tectum, and to hindbrain and spinal cord (Tay et al., 2011).
