One of the primary components of this circuit, and perhaps a useful conceptual focal point, is the nucleus accumbens shell (AcbSh), which appears to be a primary point of integration of feeding-related information in the subcortical rostral forebrain. The nature of inputs to the AcbSh indicates that this region is positioned to integrate information concerning taste and its current incentive value, previous associations made between environmental stimuli and the act of feeding, and information about the current state of energy balance, cardiovascular tone, and other visceral functions.
