  • HighlightsComprehensive review of the periaqueductal gray/dorsal raphe complex.New subdivision of the complex that accounts for its distinct characteristics.The complex is broadly involved in motivated behavior.It controls aversive and appetitive behavior and some aspects of approach‐avoidance conflict.These highly conserved nuclei appear to be the foundation of all goal‐directed control. ABSTRACT Many see the periaqueductal gray (PAG) as a region responsible for the downstream control of… CONTINUE READING
