A functional characterisation of retrorubral field dopaminergic neurons

Abstract:

Characterising the function of the brain in health is critical if the changes that occur during disease states are to be fully understood. This is particularly true of the midbrain dopaminergic system, which is compromised in disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and drug addiction. Much research concerning the midbrain dopaminergic system focuses on the two largest cell groups, namely those situated in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc) and ventral tegmental area (VTA).
