Shell of nucleus accumbens

Name: Shell of nucleus accumbens
Description: Crescent shaped outer zone of the nucleus accumbens, defined by a combination of chemoarchitecture and afferent and efferent connections. The shell is distinguished from the more centrally located core through the notable reduction in staining for the calcium-binding protein calbindin D28K, which is dense in the core and virtually absent in the shell.
Synonym(s): Nucleus accumbens shell
Abbreviation: AcbSH
Is part of: Nucleus accumbens
Super-category: Regional part of brain
