  1. The nucleus accumbens ( NAc or NAcc; also known as the accumbens nucleus, or formerly as the nucleus accumbens septi, Latin for " nucleus adjacent to the septum ") is a region in the basal forebrain rostral to the preoptic area of the hypothalamus. [1] The nucleus accumbens and the olfactory tubercle collectively form the ventral striatum.

      • The lateral hypothalamus and the nucleus accumbens shell (AcbSh) are brain regions important for food intake. The AcbSh contains high levels of receptor for melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH), a lateral hypothalamic peptide critical for feeding and metabolism.

  3. Aug 01, 2022 · The nucleus accumbens in turn sends efferent projections to the midbrain, hypothalamus, amygdala, nuclei of the brainstem, and the globus pallidus. The nucleus accumbens, through these broad connections mediates several of its functions. For example, the VTA has been shown to play a key role in reward processing.

  6. Jun 15, 2015 · The study of the neural bases of eating behavior, hunger, and reward has consistently implicated the lateral hypothalamus (LH) and its interactions with mesocorticolimbic circuitry, such as mesolimbic dopamine projections to nucleus accumbens (NAc) and ventral pallidum (VP), in controlling motivation to eat.

  7. Jan 26, 1998 · It is known that lateral hypothalamic stimulation or self-stimulation can release dopamine in the nucleus accumbens (NAc). The present experiment illustrates that an aversively motivated behavior can also do this. Rats were prepared with microdialysis probes in the NAc and electrodes in the lateral hypothalamus (LH) or medial hypothalamus (MH).
