-The rostral ventromedial medulla is a critical structure in modulating descending control of nociception. ​ It is distinct from the rostral ventrolateral medulla, which plays different roles in the control of autonomic functions.  ​+The rostral ventromedial medulla is a critical structure in modulating descending control of nociception. ​ It is distinct from the rostral ventrolateral medulla, which plays different roles in the control of autonomic functions ​and blood pressure regulation.  ​The RVM has a critical role in both inhibition and facilitation of pain through interactions with the spinal cord, and RVM plasticity may be important for the transition to chronic pain. It also likely plays a role in behavioral responses to painful events, including conditioned place preferences and immobilization responses.
