Abstract

Although we know a great deal about how the brain processes information about aversive and appetitive stimuli, it is not clear how these two systems interact to guide behavior. In this issue of Neuron, Jhou and colleagues identify a region in the midbrain tegmentum that signals aversive events and inhibits midbrain dopamine neurons.
