List of Contributors. Foreword by Paul Greengard. Preface.
Subject Index. I. The organization and circuits of mesencephalic dopaminergic neurons and the distribution of dopamine receptors in the brain (M. Bentivoglio, M. Morelli). II. Signal transduction of dopamine receptors (D. Hervé, J.-A. Girault). III. The use of dopamine receptor knockout mice to understand brain dopamine neurotransmission and sprouting in the nigrostriatal pathway (M.K. Horne, J. Drago, J. Nunan).
IV. Structural and functional interactions in the striatum at the receptor level (J.R. Wickens, G.W. Arbuthnott). V. Motor function(s) of the nigrostriatal dopamine system: studies of lesions and behaviour (S.B. Dunnett). VI. Dopamine motivation and reward (G. di Chiara). VII. Role of cortical and striatal dopamine in cognitive function (T.W. Robbins). VIII. Functional neuroanatomy of hypothalamic dopaminergic neuroendocrine systems (K.J. Lookingland, K.E. Moore). IX. Human forebrain dopamine systems: characterization of the normal brain and in relation to psychiatric disorders (Y.L. Hurd, H. Hall). Subject Index.


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.
