The midbrain periaqueductal gray as an integrative and interoceptive neural structure for breathing

Abstract:

The periaqueductal gray (PAG) plays a critical role in autonomic function and behavioural responses to threatening stimuli. Recent evidence has revealed the PAG's potential involvement in the perception of breathlessness, a highly threatening respiratory symptom.
