They are organized in a widely projecting manner, much like the monoamines, and innervate all of the components of the ARAS "Narcolepsy with Long Sleep Time"
Hence, one hypothesis is that because of the small number of these neurons in narcolepsy there is less excitation of the monoaminergic neurons during wakefulness and consequently a tendency for the cholinergic neurons to escape from the monoaminergic inhibition resulting in sudden attacks of atonia and REM periods
