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.

Finally, DeltaFosB levels and its activity in the NAc were manipulated using viral-mediated gene transfer to study its potential role in mediating sexual experience and experience-induced facilitation of sexual performance. Neurons in the nucleus accumbens are mostly medium spiny neurons MSNs containing mainly D1-type i.

If, however, the amygdala does not find any match to the stimulus received with its recorded threatening situations, then it acts according to the directions received from the neocortex. Furthermore, data presented here support the idea that NAc shell is preferentially involved in immediate drug reward, funsi the core might play a more explicit role in longer-term aspects of addiction.

Drugs of abuse induce neuroplasticity in the natural reward pathway, specifically the nucleus accumbens NActhereby causing development and expression of addictive behavior. Earlier studies revealed that repeated or chronic stress causes dendritic atrophy in CA3 pyramidal fyngsi of the rodent hippocampus [6].

P-values less than 0. 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.

Increased activity of the mesolimbic dopamine system is a central mechanism underlying the reinforcing and rewarding actions of drugs of abuse, including cocaine, as well as the compulsive drug seeking that develops over time and characterizes an addicted state 10— Differential regulation of brain-derived neurotrophic factor transcripts during the consolidation of fear learning.

Earlier studies have reported that the impact of chronic stress also differs between the hippocampus and amygdala in terms of its temporal persistence.

Nucleus accumbens

Lesions to the core of the NAc impair performance after devaluation and inhibit the effect of general PIT. Stress-induced facilitation of classical conditioning.


Role in drug addiction”. Outcome-specific PIT occurs when the Pavlovian unconditioned stimulus US and the instrumental reinforcer are the same stimulus, whereas general PIT is said to occur when the Pavlovian US and the reinforcer are different.

The nucleus accumbens is neither necessary nor sufficient for instrumental learning, although manipulations can affect performance on instrumental learning tasks. Reinstatement of drug-seeking behavior.

Glucocortcoids mediate the stress-induced extracellular accumulation of glutamate. It has been found that deltaFosB gene in the NAc is critical for reinforcing effects of sexual reward. Growing evidence has linked growth of dendrites and spines in the BLA — caused either amygdxla stress or BDNF overexpression — to enhanced anxiety-like behavior [8][15].

On the other hand, chronic stress-induced reduction of BDNF levels, and its reversal during stress-free recovery, mirrors earlier findings on reversible dendritic atrophy elicited fungsj chronic stress in hippocampal area CA3. Interestingly, the unique temporal features of stress-induced changes in the BLA are not limited to chronic stress alone.

This organization of the DA system, wide projection from a limited number of cell bodies, permits coordinated responses to potent new rewards. Increased hippocampal bdnf immunoreactivity in subjects treated with antidepressant medication.

From the core, the neurons project to other sub-cortical areas such as the vungsi pallidus and the substantia nigra. There are approximately histaminergic neurons per side in humans. Thus, the variations in corticosterone levels reported here appear to depend on both the severity of the stress paradigm and time points of measurement after the termination of stress. Stress-induced dendritic remodeling in these two brain areas differ not only in polarity, but also in terms of their temporal persistence.

This hypothesis has received support from several studies including a report that direct BDNF infusion into the rodent hippocampus produces antidepressant effects [14][15]. Animals with DeltaFosB overexpression displayed enhanced facilitation of sexual performance with sexual experience relative to controls.

We also monitored the impact of CIS on blood serum levels of corticosterone and relative gain in body weight after the same recovery period.

Amygdwla of the National Academy of Sciences. This distinction is thought to reflect consummatory and appetitive conditioned responses in the NAc shell and the NAc core, respectively.

The Amgydala, in turn, projects to the medial dorsal nucleus of the dorsal thalamuswhich projects to the prefrontal cortex as well as the striatum. D2 receptor agonists or antagonists amygdalaa Neurotrophins regulate dendritic growth in developing visual cortex.


These two different phenotypes of MSN are also present in the ventral striatum mostly represented by the nucleus accumbens and the olfactory tubercle. These findings are also significant in view of an earlier study demonstrating that transgenic xmygdala of BDNF enhances spine-density in the BLA of mice [16].

Stress and glucocorticoids affect the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor and neurotrophin-3 mRNAs in the hippocampus. Frontiers fhngsi Systems Neuroscience. Further as hippocampal BDNF is critically involved in resilience to stress, any reduction can enhance vulnerability to stress [40]. Corticosterone measurements Rats were weighed and sacrificed by rapid decapitation under deep anesthesia halothane and trunk blood was collected within 3 minutes for each animal; all samples were collected between 10 AM and 1 PM.

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. Dialogues fnugsi Clinical Neuroscience. For example, the shell and core subregions of NAc display differences in fugnsi synaptic plasticity, as do D1- versus D2-type medium spiny neurons within each subregion.

For instance, exposure to 10 days of chronic immobilization stress elicits dendritic hypertrophy in BLA principal neurons that lasts till at least 21 days after the termination of stress [7]. BDNF expression profile is normalized to respective control level. Phenethylamine and tyramine are trace amines which are synthesized in neurons that express the aromatic amino acid hydroxylase AADC fungssiwhich includes all dopaminergic neurons.

When the amygdala perceives a threat, it can amjgdala that person to react irrationally and destructively. Chemical Signalling in the Basal Ganglia. Dendritic spine density in the nucleus accumbens. This suggests that although some of the immediate consequences of stress — elevated glucocorticoids and glutamate — are similar in both brain areas, they subsequently lead to contrasting patterns of BDNF expression and structural plasticity.

On the other hand, lesions to the shell only impair the effect of specific PIT.
