medial division of the periaqueductal gray
The term medial division of the periaqueductal gray refers to a subdivision of the periaqueductal gray as segmented in the functionally defined motor periaqueductal gray. It is a narrow band of cells that surrounds the cerebral aqueduct throughout its course. It represents the medial most portion of each of the four longitudinal columns of the classical periaqueductal gray. Functionally the motor periaqueductal gray belongs to the behavior control column of the cerebrospinal trunk ( Swanson-2004 ).
