Day 3 Micro-Science: Reticular Activating System

Reticular Activating System in Brainstem

The gatekeeper between the mind and the body is called the reticular activating system and is located in the lower part of the brain. This is one of the oldest parts of the brain and plays a major part in wakefulness, as its the system that gets activated when a teacher tells you to “sit up straight.” It is the main communicator between what your mind decides to do and what your body ends up actually doing. The reticular activating system is also what gets flooded with alcohol when a person binge drinks causing the link between mind and body to be inhibited. The reticular activating system is also what gets activated when a person goes against their values, causing them to “wake up” and take notice. After a night on the sauce, this is one reason why people are not their “normal selves” and find themselves apologizing for their behavior.
