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.

Effects of repeated stress on basal corticosterone and behavior.

Nucleus accumbens

Phenethylamine and tyramine are trace amines which are synthesized in neurons that express the aromatic amino acid hydroxylase AADC enzymewhich includes all fungxi neurons. Data analysis Percentage changes in body weight gain were compared between control and experimental groups using unpaired Student’s t test assuming unequal variances. Recent evidence indicates that inactivation of D2 receptors, in the indirect striatopallidal pathway in rodents, is necessary funfsi both acquisition and expression of aversive behavior, and direct pathway Amygdwla receptor activation controls reward-based learning Hikida et al.

Pitchers and colleagues reported that sexual experience was shown to cause DeltaFosB accumulation in several limbic brain regions including the NAc, medial pre-frontal cortex, VTA, caudate, and putamen, but not the medial preoptic nucleus.

Hippocampal CA3 atrophy, on the other hand, is reversible within the same period of post-stress recovery [1][7]. It seems we can conclude that direct and indirect pathways of the NAc, via D1 and D2 receptors, subserve distinct anticipation and valuation roles in the shell and core of NAc, which is consistent with observations regarding spatial segregation and diversity of responses of midbrain dopaminergic neurons for rewarding and aversive conditions, some encoding motivational value, others motivational salience, each connected with distinct brain networks and having distinct roles in motivational control Bromberg-Martin et al.

BDNF-mediated signaling is involved in stress response but the direction and nature of signaling is region-specific, stress specific and is influenced by epigenetic modifications along with post translational modifications [32]. BDNF expression profile was normalized to respective control levels and evaluated by Fisher’s post-hoc. As described for food reward, sexual experience can also lead to activation of plasticity-related signaling cascades.


The nucleus accumbens core is involved in the cognitive processing of motor function related to reward and reinforcement and the regulation of slow-wave sleep. After repeated pairing, these classically conditioned environmental stimuli e.

Tissue was lysed in the presence of protease inhibitor cocktail Roche. The results are inconclusive and controversial. Activation of the NAcc has been shown to occur in the anticipation of effectiveness of a drug when a user is given a placeboindicating a contributing role of the nucleus accumbens in the placebo effect.

Retrieved from ” https: These core versus shell differences are likely due to the different anatomical inputs and pallidal outputs associated with these accumbens subregions Root et al. Conceived and designed the experiments: As is evident in Figure 2, the same neurons exhibited opposite responses when an aversive quinine solution was delivered intra-orally. Specifically, 1 day after the termination of stress, the same CIS that caused dendritic atrophy in the CA3 pyramidal neurons, elicited dendritic growth and spinogenesis in the BLA principal neurons.

The correlated cells of these excited states of the medium spiny neurons in the nucleus accumbens are shared equally between the subiculum and CA1.

Amygdala hijack – Wikipedia

Retrieved 31 October Glucocorticoid receptors are the only corticosteroid receptors in the nucleus accumbens shell. The neurons in the core, as compared to the neurons in the shell, have an increased density of dendritic spinesbranch segments, and terminal segments.

We also monitored the impact of CIS on blood serum levels of corticosterone and relative gain in body weight after the same recovery period. Views Read Edit View history. When the amygdala perceives a threat, it can lead that person to react irrationally and destructively.


Further, the up-regulation of BDNF seen in the NAc after social-defeat stress persists for as long as 4 weeks, similar to the prolonged increase we see in the BLA [20]. In contrast, the expression of DeltaJunD, a dominant-negative binding partner of DeltaFosB, attenuated sexual experience-induced facilitation of sexual performance, and stunted long-term maintenance of facilitation compared to DeltaFosB overexpressing group.

These findings demonstrate that even a shorter duration of stress triggers changes in BDNF in fungxi BLA and CA3 area that differ considerably in their direction and temporal features. The contrasting effects of stress on BDNF shed new light on earlier findings on the differential patterns of cellular changes elicited by chronic and acute stress in the amygdala versus hippocampus.

Together, these studies have helped identify novel features of stress-induced plasticity in the amygdala that are quite distinct from those observed amydgala the hippocampus.

Table 1 Summary of body weight measures. The nucleus accumbens is neither necessary nor sufficient for instrumental learning, although manipulations can affect performance on instrumental learning tasks.

The reduction in hippocampal BDNF due to acute and chronic stress, in turn, is known to be mediated at least in part by stress-induced increase in glucocorticoids [10][27]. LeDoux was positive about the possibility of learning to control the amygdala’s fungxi role in emotional outbursts. Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews.

Sydor A, Brown RY, eds. Interestingly, activation of TrkB amygala p75NTR promote and suppress dendritic spine growth respectively [33]. Discussion This study explored two key facets of stress-induced modulation of BDNF expression in the hippocampus and amygdala — one in terms of region-specific differences, and the other in the temporal domain.
