A subset of ventral tegmental area neurons is inhibited by dopamine, 5-hydroxytryptamine and opioids.

Abstract

Neurons originating in the ventral tegmental area are thought to play a key role in the formation of addictive behaviors, particularly in response to drugs such as cocaine and opioids. In this study we identified different populations of ventral tegmental area neurons by the pharmacology of their evoked synaptic potentials and their response to dopamine, 5… (More)
