  • mesolimbic
  • The degree of activity in the mesolimbic striatal regions, especially the nucleus accumbens, during music listening was the best predictor of the amount listeners were willing to spend on previously unheard music in an auction paradigm. (sciencemag.org)
  • Given the role of the mesolimbic dopamine (DA) system in the initiation and maintenance of motivated behavior, microdialysis was used to monitor nucleus accumbens (NAC) DA transmission during copulation, sexual satiety, and the reinitiation of sexual behavior. (jneurosci.org)
  • selective
  • There was a dose-dependent selective increase in responding on the lever that produced the light (CR) with intra-accumbens d -amphetamine infusions. (springer.com)
  • Intra-accumbens d -amphetamine produced selective increases in responding only if the contingent stimulus had been positively correlated. (springer.com)
  • control
  • Experiment 2 provided evidence that the enhanced control over responding by a CR with intra-accumbens d -amphetamine is behaviourally specific. (springer.com)
  • structures
  • The accumbens receives afferent input from corticolimbic and thalamic structures, which is primarily coded by excitatory amino acids (EAAs). (jneurosci.org)
  • release
  • Direct infusion of 17β-estradiol hemisuccinate (17β-E, 20-50 pg) into the nucleus accumbens resulted in a biphasic potentiation of K + -stimulated release. (wiley.com)
