Sammanfattning

Motivation alters behaviour in a complex manner and nucleus accumbens (NAc) shell has been implied as a key structure regulating such behaviour. Recent studies show that acute ghrelin signalling enhances motivation when assessed in a simple motor task. The aim of the present study was to define the role of ghrelin signalling on motivation in a more complex motor behaviour. Rats were tested in the Montoya staircase, an animal model of skilled reach foraging assessed by the number of sucrose pellets consumed. Electrophysiological recordings were conducted to explore the neurophysiological correlates of ghrelin signalling. The initial electrophysiological results displayed that ex vivo administration of ghrelin increased NAc shell output in brain slices from drug- and training-naïve rats. In rats with an acquired skilled reach performance, acute as well as repeated treatment with a ghrelin receptor (GHSR-1 A) antagonist (JMV2959) decreased the number of sucrose pellets consumed. Moreover, infusion of JMV2959 into NAc shell reduced this consumption. Sub-chronic, during ten days, JMV2959 treatment during training on the Montoya staircase reduced the number of pellets consumed, whereas ghrelin improved this behaviour. In addition, field potential and whole cell recordings were conducted in NAc shell of rats that had been treated with ghrelin or GHSR-1 A antagonist during training on the Montoya staircase. Sub-chronic administration of ghrelin during motor-skill learning selectively increased the frequency of inhibitory transmission in the NAc shell, resulting in a net suppression of accumbal output. Collectively these data suggest that ghrelin signalling in NAc shell enhances skilled reached foraging tentatively by increasing the motivation. © 2019
