Dopamine Neurons That Cotransmit Glutamate, From Synapses to Circuits to Behavior

Dopamine Neurons That Cotransmit Glutamate, From Synapses to Circuits to Behavior
Front Neural Circuits. 2021 May 19;15:665386. doi: 10.3389/fncir.2021.665386. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTDiscovered just over 20 years ago, dopamine neurons have the ability to cotransmit both dopamine and glutamate. Yet, the functional roles of dopamine neuron glutamate cotransmission and their implications for therapeutic use are just emerging. This review article encompasses the current body of evidence investigating the functions of dopamine neurons of ... read more
