Rostral ventromedial medulla connections in Cavia porcellus and their relation with tonic immobility defensive behavior: A biotinylated dextran amine neurotracing study


The rostroventromedial medulla (RVM), together with the periaqueductal gray matter (PAG), constitutes the descendent antinociceptive system. Additionally, these structures mutually regulate defensive behaviors, including tonic immobility (TI) in guinea pigs. The current study was undertaken to evaluate the connections of the RVM with the PAG and the spinal… (More)
