Kappa-opioid receptor-dependent changes in dopamine and anxiety-like or approach-avoidance behavior occur differentially across the nucleus accumbens shell rostro-caudal axis
Neural circuit engagement within the nucleus accumbens (NAc) shell is implicated in the regulation of both negative and positive affect. Classically, …

New work from
showing that kappa receptor agonist effects on dopamine output and affective behaviors varies across the rostral-caudal axis of the accumbens. Good luck with the pending R01!
