Brainstem anatomy WIKI
This WIKI is a guide to human subcortical-brainstem anatomy and connectivity. Observational clinical studies have linked social and higher cognitive phenomena to several types of changes in peripheral organ systems and disease processes. This WIKI reviews the autonomic and neuroendocrine outputs that regulate peripheral function, with an emphasis on a) brainstem regions, and b) sympathetic (SNS) regulation systems.

Q: Should the info for this particular wiki contain info (e.g. for effects of injection, optogenetics, stimulation, etc.) specific to pain/affect/placebo, or further reaching? A: All-encompassing info from a variety of studies
Q: For the inputs/outputs, I'm assuming this means the projections to/from the area, and the associated neurotransmitters, but I wasn't sure what to put for strength (L M H) and confidence (L M H). A: A rating of the strength of those connections, and your confidence in that rating.
Q: It appears you cannot upload figures/PDFs to the brainstem area of the wiki, you must upload it to another area (I've been using “root”), then you can upload it to where you need it to be. This isn't a problem to do, I just don't want to be cluttering “root” or wherever else with figures and PDFs for the brainstem wiki. Is there an easy fix for this, or should we just keep uploading the file to a different area, then uploading the figure to the brainstem wiki? A:
Ventral striatal group
Habenula - Anjali Ventral thalamus - Wani Subthalamic nucleus - Wani
