Series: Handbook of Chemical Neuroanatomy

Edited by some of the pioneers of the rapidly expanding field of chemical neuroanatomy, the Handbook of Chemical Neuroanatomy series contains invaluable information for those interested in the localization and function of putative transmitter substances in the nervous system. The series focuses on scholarly reviews, complete and theoretical backgrounds of the methods, discussions of their advantages and limitations as well as detailed recipes. The volumes form a major continuing exposition of the chemical neuroanatomy of the brain, making a fundamental contribution to current knowledge of neurochemicals and their receptors in the nervous system.

Volume 21. Dopamine

Published: 18th December 2004 Editors: S.B. Dunnett M. Bentivoglio A. Björklund T. Hökfelt
Dopamine is a major neurotransmitter of the brain involved in the control of movement, emotion, and cognition; disturbance in dopamine function is associated with disorders like Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

This volume of the Handbook of Chemical Neuroanatomy provides a series of in depth critical reviews of our present understanding of the most important aspects of dopamine’s organisation and disturbed function in the animal and human brain.
