    Metabolic signature in nucleus accumbens for anti-depressant-like effects of acetyl-L-carnitine

    Antoine Cherix et al.
    1H-Magnetic resonance spectroscopy at 14T reveals a metabolic signature for anti-depressant-like effects of acetyl-L-carnitine in nucleus accumbens of susceptible mouse.

    Altered gating of Kv1.4 in the nucleus accumbens suppresses motivation for reward

    Bernadette O'Donovan et al.
    Low effort-based motivation to pursue naturally rewarding stimuli can be increased pharmacologically, by targeting inactivation of a single voltage-gated potassium channel within the mesolimbic dopamine reward system.

    Persistent coding of outcome-predictive cue features in the rat nucleus accumbens

    Jimmie M Gmaz et al.
    Neural activity in the rat nucleus accumbens provides a rich task representation that includes not only expected outcomes, but also the specific identity of the cues that predict these outcomes.

    Endogenous opioids in the nucleus accumbens promote approach to high-fat food in the absence of caloric need

    Kevin Caref, Saleem M Nicola
    Activation of mu-opioid receptors in the nucleus accumbens by their endogenous ligands promotes consumption of high-fat food in sated but not hungry rats, via enhancement of a neural signal that promotes cued approach behavior.

    MeCP2 in cholinergic interneurons of nucleus accumbens regulates fear learning

    Ying Zhang et al.
    Robust fear learning deficits and decreased tonic activity of NAc cholinergic interneurons caused by depletion of MeCP2 could be attributed to an elevation in α2-containing GABAA receptors.

    Amygdala-ventral striatum circuit activation decreases long-term fear

    Susana S Correia et al.
    Behavior- or optogenetic-driven activation of a basolateral amygdala projection to the nucleus accumbens enhances infralimbic cortex activity and long-term fear extinction.

    Dopamine neurons projecting to medial shell of the nucleus accumbens drive heroin reinforcement

    Julie Corre et al.
    Disinhibition of dopamine neurons in the midbrain drives heroin reinforcement, the initial step towards opioid addiction.
    1. Neuroscience

    Dopamine and opioid systems interact within the nucleus accumbens to maintain monogamous pair bonds

    Shanna L Resendez et al.
    The neural mechanisms that underlie the maintenance of social bonds between prairie voles suggest that social support networks may be a powerful way of treating addiction.

    In vivo detection of optically-evoked opioid peptide release

    Ream Al-Hasani et al.
    In vivo detection of optically evoked endogenous opioid peptides reveals anatomically distinct release profiles.
    1. Neuroscience

    The paraventricular thalamus is a critical mediator of top-down control of cue-motivated behavior in rats

    Paolo Campus et al.
    A top-down circuit generating from the prelimbic cortex and projecting to the paraventricular nucleus of the thalamus mediates individual differences in cue-elicited responding by affecting subcortical dopamine-dependent incentive learning.
