Movements resembling orientation or avoidance elicited by electrical stimulation of the superior colliculus in rats
TLDR
The stimulation-induced avoidance and escape may reflect the importance of such responses to visual “events,” particularly in the upper part of the visual field, in animals, like rats, with many predators.

Dependence of Photic Cortical Effects of Aversive Central Gray Stimulation on Reticular Activation
TLDR
It is more likely that the activating properties of ESB, rather than the aversive quality, are responsible for the amplitude reductions, as central gray ESB subliminal for escape but not for ECoG activation, also reduced cortical amplitudes in a manner similar to the effect of aversive ESB.
