-Located posterior to the VTA, the RMTg contains primarily GABAergic neurons. RMTg neurons are excited by shock-predictive neurons, and a smaller proportion are excited by reward omission. RMTg receives input from a wide range of regions that respond to aversive stimuli, such as the PAG, and lateral habenula, and sends output to midbrain and brainstem regions including the ventral pallidum, VTA/SNc and dorsal raphe nucleus. ​+Located posterior to the VTA, the RMTg (rostromedial tegmental nucleus) ​contains primarily GABAergic neurons.
