  • Dynamic risk control by human nucleus accumbens
    Parashkev Nachev, Fernando Lopez-Sosa, Javier Jesus Gonzalez-Rosa, Ana Galarza, Josue Avecillas, Jose Angel Pineda-Pardo, Juan José Lopez-Ibor, Blanca Reneses, Juan Antonio Barcia, Bryan Strange Brain (2015) 138 (12): 3496-3502 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/brain/awv285 First published online: 1 October 2015 (7 pages)

    The nucleus accumbens is a key node in the network linking reward to action. Studying a rare series of patients with bilaterally implanted electrodes in the nucleus accumbens, Nachev et al. show that external electrical stimulation of the accumbens dynamically shifts behaviour towards more risky decision making.
