The reticular formation extends rostrally from the brainstem into the intralaminar nuclei of the thalamus and certain aggregations of subthalamic cells (the zona incerta). These are discrete nuclei with specific interconnections involved in the modulation of arousal and associated autonomic functions [13, 14]. The nuclei of the reticular formation can be divided into three zones with distinct anatomy and function. First is the median and paramedian zone formed by the serotonergic raphe nuclei. Second is a medial zone that appears to integrate signals from ascending sensory and descending motor pathways.
