Complex networks of pathways project from various structures in the brain to modulate spinal processing of sensory input in a top-down fashion. The rostral ventromedial medulla (RVM) in the brainstem is one major final common output of this endogenous modulatory system and is involved in the relay of sensory information between the spinal cord and brain. The net output of descending neurons that exert inhibitory and facilitatory effects will determine whether neuronal activity in the spinal… CONTINUE READING
