The nucleus accumbens (NAc or NAcc), also known as the accumbens nucleus, or formerly as basolateral amygdala, ventral hippocampus, thalamic nuclei ( specifically the midline thalamic nuclei and intralaminar nuclei of the thalamus). The ventral anterior cingulate cortex includes subcallosal and precallosal portions that have extensive connections with the insula, prefrontal cortex, amygdala.

Diagonal band of Broca Stria terminalis. This hypothesis has received support from several studies including a report that direct BDNF infusion into the rodent hippocampus produces antidepressant effects [14][15]. Thus, brain region specific variations in BDNF expression is a key question that requires further investigation.

Animals with DeltaFosB overexpression displayed enhanced facilitation of sexual performance with sexual experience relative to controls.

We also confirmed the efficacy of our CIS paradigm by assessing two widely used indicators of stress. D2 receptor agonists or antagonists Globus pallidus Rostromedial tegmental nucleus. Thus, fear-evoking stimuli are capable of differentially altering phasic dopamine transmission across NAcc subregions. Although little is known about molecular mechanisms underlying these contrasting effects of stress, previous studies in the hippocampus provide valuable leads.

Current models of addiction from chronic drug use involve alterations in gene expression in the mesocorticolimbic projection.

However, little is known amygddala the molecular correlates of the differential effects of chronic and acute stress. Interestingly, BDNF mRNA has been shown to be elevated transiently in the BLA 2 hours after cued fear conditioning and such a temporally restricted elevation of BDNF signaling is believed to be a key step in the formation of a cue-specific fear [34][35].

To test this hypothesis, we fujgsi two very different paradigms of immobilization stress — an acute paradigm involving a single 2 h session AIS and a chronic version wherein the same 2-hour stress was repeated for 10 consecutive days CIS. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.

The shell of amygala nucleus accumbens is involved in the cognitive processing of rewardincluding subjective “liking” reactions to certain pleasurable stimulimotivational salienceand positive reinforcement. Dopamine action in NAc is mediated predominantly via activation of D1 or D2 dopamine receptors that are expressed by largely nonoverlapping populations of medium spiny neurons MSNs The funders had no fungwi in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.

Phenethylamine and tyramine are trace amines which are synthesized in neurons that express the aromatic amino acid hydroxylase AADC enzymewhich includes all dopaminergic neurons. Monoamines, Acetylcholine, smygdala Orexin”. Published online Jan Interestingly, the unique temporal features of stress-induced changes in the BLA are not limited to chronic stress alone.

The nucleus accumbens comprises a contingent of neurons specifically expressing the fungxi A2A-receptor A2AR subtype making them excitable by adenosine, its natural agonist endowed with powerful sleep-promoting properties[4].

Nucleus accumbens

While most studies show no effect of selective optogenetic stimulation of D1 or D2 MSNs on locomotor activity, one study has reported a decrease in basal locomotion with D2-MSN stimulation. Growing evidence has linked growth of dendrites and spines in the BLA — caused either by stress or BDNF overexpression — to enhanced anxiety-like behavior [8][15].

International Journal of Molecular Sciences. In contrast, there was no difference in the percentage gain in body weight between stressed and unstressed animals after the recovery period Control, In addition to the ventral pallidum, the medial globus pallidus and the substantia nigra-VTA, the ventral striatum sends projections to the extended amygdala, the lateral hypothalamus and the pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus. Together, these findings also highlight the importance of investigating the potential mechanisms that cause the same stress to have opposite effects on BDNF expression as well as the differential impact of variable durations of stress on BDNF levels.


Received Sep 22; Accepted Dec Neural and Neuroendocrine Control of the Internal Milieu”.

However, although they are phenotypically equal to their dorsal counterparts, they have some differences in terms of connectivity. Because BDNF regulates dendritic architecture and spines, both major targets of stress-induced structural plasticity, we hypothesized that the levels of BDNF expression would reflect the divergent effects of stress on the hippocampus and amygdala. While the best characterized function of the histamine system in the brain is regulation of sleep and arousal, histamine is also involved in learning and memory Furthermore, data presented here support the idea that NAc shell is preferentially involved in immediate drug reward, while the core might play a more explicit role in longer-term aspects of addiction.

The nucleus accumbens is one of the few regions that receive histaminergic projections from the tuberomammillary nucleus the sole source of histamine neurons in the brain.

The output neurons of the nucleus accumbens send axonal projections to the basal ganglia and the ventral analog of the globus pallidusknown as the ventral pallidum VP. Stress duration modulates the spatiotemporal patterns of spine formation in the basolateral amygdala. Consistent with other reports Nicola and others ; Taha and Fieldsthe predominant response of NAc neurons to sucrose infusions was a decrease in activity Fig.
