D E S C E N D I N G PAT H WAY S Descending modulatory neural pathways function to reduce pain perception and efferent responses by inhibiting pain transmission in the dorsal horn, PAG, brainstem (rostroventromedial medulla, RVM), and other regions of the CNS. The cerebral cortex, hypothalamus, thalamus, PAG, nucleus raphe magnus (NRM), and locus coeruleus (LC) all send descending axons that synapse with, and modulate pain transmission in, noxious cells located in the brainstem and spinal cord dorsal horn.
