Several sources of evidence indicate that the inferior colliculus also integrates acoustic information of an aversive nature besides its well-known role as a relay station for auditory pathways. Gradual increases of the electrical stimulation of this structure cause in a hierarchical manner alertness, freezing and escape behaviors. Independent groups of animals implanted with bipolar electrodes into the inferior colliculus received electrical stimulation at one of these aversive thresholds… CONTINUE READING
