    Cerebellar modulation of synaptic input to freezing-related neurons in the periaqueductal gray

    Christopher E Vaaga et al.
    The mouse cerebellum regulates innate defensive neural circuitry by tonically controlling dopamine release in the periaqueductal gray, thereby modulating synaptic responses of the Chx10-positive neurons that generate freezing behavior.

    Ventrolateral periaqueductal gray neurons prioritize threat probability over fear output

    Kristina M Wright, Michael A McDannald
    Single-unit activity in the ventrolateral periaqueductal gray, a brain region implicated in organizing fear output, is found to reflect threat probability, a more versatile threat signal.

    The cortical connectivity of the periaqueductal gray and the conditioned response to the threat of breathlessness

    Olivia K Faull, Kyle TS Pattinson
    Building on previous work (Faull et al, 2016), it shown that the different connectivity profiles of the individual columns of the human periaqueductal gray support their proposed roles in human threat behaviours, such as freezing or fight/flight.

    Conditioned respiratory threat in the subdivisions of the human periaqueductal gray

    Olivia K Faull et al.
    High-resolution imaging shows that the different columns of the human periaqueductal gray play differential roles in the response to a respiratory threat.

    Cue-inhibited ventrolateral periaqueductal gray neurons signal fear output and threat probability in male rats

    Kristina M Wright et al.
    Ventrolateral periaqueductal gray neurons signal fear output through patterned inhibition of neural activity.

    Circuit and synaptic organization of forebrain-to-midbrain pathways that promote and suppress vocalization

    Valerie Michael et al.
    Inhibitory neurons in the hypothalamus and amygdala push and pull on the midbrain vocal gating circuit to trigger and suppress ultrasonic vocalization (USV) production in the mouse.

    Ablation of STAT3 in Purkinje cells reorganizes cerebellar synaptic plasticity in long-term fear memory network

    Jeong-Kyu Han et al.
    Cerebellar STAT3 is indispensable for proper expression of fear memory network processing.

    Loss of cortical control over the descending pain modulatory system determines the development of the neuropathic pain state in rats

    Robert AR Drake et al.
    Alterations to brain network communication leading to a progressive loss in descending inhibitory modulation of the spinal cord is a key determinate of pain state development following peripheral nerve injury.

    Pretectal neurons control hunting behaviour

    Paride Antinucci et al.
    A discrete population of genetically accessible pretectal neurons controls visually guided hunting behaviour in larval zebrafish.

    Activity dynamics of amygdala GABAergic neurons during cataplexy of narcolepsy

    Ying Sun et al.
    Deep brain calcium imaging reveals the abnormal neuronal activity patterns of the amygdala GABAergic neurons in an animal model of human sleep disorder narcolepsy.
