Helen Baghdoyan

Elen Baghdoyan

Professor of anesthesiology
Professor of pharmacology

Department of Anesthesiology - Research Division

University of Michigan Medical School



- Brain Regions and Neurotransmitters Mediating Opioid Induced Sleep Disruption

Dr. Helen A. Baghdoyan earned her Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut and did her postdoctoral training in the Department of Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School. Her research program has been funded by the National Institutes of Mental Health since 1989. Her research also is supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, and by the University of Michigan’s Department of Anesthesiology. Dr. Baghdoyan’s research program aims to identify the neurochemical mechanisms and brain regions regulating arousal states such as sleep and anesthesia. Her work is focused on the interactions between cholinergic, GABAergic, and hypocretinergic transmission in the pontine reticular formation, basal forebrain, and prefrontal cortex. The health relatedness of this research program derives from the fact that sleep disruption is a characteristic of all psychiatric diseases, and that some clinical features of depression and anxiety are caused by altered cholinergic transmission. Identifying modulators of cholinergic transmission within the context of behavioral state control has the potential to enhance understanding of the neurochemical substrates of mental health.

- Neurochemical mechanisms regulating sleep and pain.
Ralph Lydic is the Bert La Du Professor of Anesthesiology and Associate Chair for Anesthesiology Research at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Lydic earned his doctoral degree in the laboratory of John Orem and completed postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School in the laboratories of Alan Hobson and R.W. McCarley. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health funds Dr. Lydic's laboratory. The goals of his research are to elucidate the mechanisms by which sleep, opioids, and volatile anesthetics depress breathing and arousal. The evolutionary perspective, and current data, supports the view that neurons generating sleep and wakefulness preferentially modulate the ability of opioids, hypnotics, and anesthetics to depress wakefulness. This concept underlies work in Dr. Lydic's laboratory characterizing the neurochemical and signal transduction processes through which cholinergic neurons modulate sleep, arousal, and autonomic control. Recent work has shown that adenosine and nitric oxide modulate pontine acetylcholine release and arousal. A second research program is characterizing the effects of opioids on cholinergic neurotransmission. These studies aim to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which opioids inhibit cholinergic neurotransmission and disrupt sleep and breathing. Both of these research programs encourage an active interaction between basic and clinical investigators.

Daniele Piomelli

PhD - Professor of Pharmacology and Biological Chemistry
Louise Turner Arnold Chair in the Neurosciences
University of California, Irvine, California 92617-4621

Director, Drug Discovery and Development
Italian Institute of Technology Genoa

- Endocannabinoid regulation of anxiety and mood.

Daniele Piomelli was born and educated in Italy, where he earned his degree of Doctor of Pharmacy in 1982. He moved to New York City in 1983, where he studied Pharmacology and Neuroscience with James H. Schwartz and Eric Kandel at Columbia University, and later with Paul Greengard at the Rockefeller University. Both of his mentors received in 2000 the Nobel Prize for their contributions to neuropharmacology. After working as directeur de recherche at the INSERM in Paris (France) and a senior fellow at the Neurosciences Institute in San Diego (CA), Dr. Piomelli joined the University of California, Irvine, where he is Professor of Pharmacology and Louise Turner Arnold Chair in the Neurosciences. He also serves as founding director of the Department of Drug Discovery and Development at the Italian Institute of Technology. Dr. Piomelli has a long-standing interest in the neuropharmacology of lipid messengers, an area in which he has made three contributions. First, he established the role of arachidonic acid as an intracellular second messenger and revealed the molecular mechanisms by which this compound regulates neural activity. Second, he elucidated the pathways involved in the formation and deactivation of brain cannabis-like substances, and uncovered physiological functions and potential pharmacological uses of these compounds. Some of these discoveries have been translated into potential medicines, which are currently undergoing clinical testing. Last, he discovered the role of the natural lipids oleoylethanolamide (OEA) and palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) in the control of satiety, energy balance and pain, and identified the cellular receptor for these compounds.Dr. Piomelli is an author in more than 160 papers in journals such as Nature, Science and Nature Neuroscience, more than 15 patents and three full-length books. He has received several awards and honors, including the Dargut and Milena Kemali Prize in Neuroscience and the National Alliance for Research on Depression and Schizophrenia (NARSAD) Distinguished Investigator Award. He co-founded the biopharmaceutical start-up Kadmus Pharmaceuticals.

Peter J Soja

Ph.D., Professor Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences

- Vancouver, BC Canada

 

- Gating of Sensory Inflow Through Nociceptive Pathways During Sleep

- Anesthetic-Dependent Actions on Descending Control of the Spinothalamic Tract

Professor of Pharmacology and Neuroscience in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. Soja earned his doctoral degree in John Sinclair's laboratory and completed postdoctoral training with Michael Chase and Francisco Morales at the UCLA School of Medicine and the UCLA Brain Research Institute. Dr. Soja's research has been funded by the British Health Care Research Foundation, Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the US National Institutes of Health. Dr. Soja's research focuses on how the brain controls its own somatosensory inputs across behavioral states, e.g., during wakefulness vs. sleep and/or anesthesia. The longstanding relative dearth of reports of tactile and even uncomfortable pain from dream sleep mentation studies suggest that the brain may actively attenuate (non)nociceptive sensory inflow via second order sensory tract neurons. If confirmed, this notion may provide novel therapeutic avenues for pain control. Dr. Soja's laboratory has discovered, using chronic single neuron recording techniques that during REM sleep, sensory inflow, at the trigeminal and lumbar levels, is reduced by classical pre- and postsynaptic inhibitory mechanisms.Recent work has shown that glycine, in particular, plays a principal role in inhibiting lumbar sensory tract neurons during REM sleep providing a providence for identifying the responsible inhibitory neuron(s) responsible for sensory de-afferentation and atonia that hallmarks REM sleep. During NREM sleep, when "sleep spindle" EEG oscillations are most abundant, sensory inflow via the spinoreticular tract and trigeminal tract is also subjected to novel inhibitory modulation. Efforts are underway to understand in greater detail how such phenomena occur and are altered when lower pain thresholds coincide with chronic sleep restriction, an issue which is relevant to the management of acute and chronic pain.
