Dopaminergic (DA) neurons in the substantia nigra (SN) and ventral tegmental area (VTA) of the midbrain project to the dorsolateral caudate/putamen and to the ventromedially located nucleus accumbens, respectively, establishing the mesostriatal and the mesolimbic pathways. Disruptions in this system have been implicated in Parkinson's disease, drug addiction, schizophrenia, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. However, progress in our understanding has been hindered by a lack of… Expand
Ephrin‐A5 regulates the formation of the ascending midbrain dopaminergic pathways
TLDR
Observations indicate that the interactions between ephrin‐A ligands and EphA receptors promote growth and targeting of the midbrain dopaminergic axons to the striatum. Expand
Axon guidance in the dopamine system.
TLDR
The current knowledge of the ontogeny of mdDA axon projections in subsystems of the developing rodent central nervous system (CNS) is summarized and the cellular and molecular mechanisms that mediate md DA axon guidance in these CNS regions are discussed. Expand
Evidence for topographic guidance of dopaminergic axons by differential Netrin-1 expression in the striatum
TLDR
The results reveal novel actions for Netrin-1 and provide evidence for a mechanism through which DA axons can selectively innervate one of two terminal zones in the striatum but have free reign to arborize widely within a terminal zone. Expand
Dopaminergic innervation of forebrain by ventral mesencephalon in organotypic slice co-cultures: effects of GDNF.
TLDR
It is indicated that the normal pattern of innervation by DA neurons of the mesencephalon can be recapitulated with organotypic co-cultures and that this pattern can be altered by GDNF. Expand
Getting connected in the dopamine system
TLDR
Current understanding of the ontogeny and anatomy ofmdDA axon pathways is summarized to highlight recent progress in defining the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie the formation and remodeling of mdDA circuits, and to discuss the significance of this progress for understanding and treating situations of perturbed connectivity in the mdDA system.

Axon Guidance in the Dopamine
TLDR
Current knowledge of the ontogeny ofmdDA axon projections in subsystems of the developingrodent central nervous system (CNS) is summarized and the cellular and molecular mechanisms that mediate md DA axon guidance in these CNS regions are summarized. Expand
Dopaminergic axon guidance: which makes what?
TLDR
The modulation of expression of these molecular signals in the lesioned adult brain and their potential role in remodeling the mesotelencephalic dopaminergic circuitry are reviewed, with a particular focus on Parkinson's disease (PD). Expand
Ontogeny of the dopamine innervation in the nucleus accumbens of gerbils
TLDR
The data suggest that the different maturation of the DA innervation in core and shell might reflect differences in the development of motor and limbic functions, mediated by the nigrostriate and the mesolimbic system, respectively. Expand
Postnatal development of dopamine innervation in the amygdala and the entorhinal cortex of the gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus)
TLDR
Results show a significant increase of fibers between PD14 and PD20 in the BLA and lateral part of the CE, with a trend for a subsequent decline in fiber densities until PD30, and none of the investigated areas showed significant reductions of DA fibers during aging. Expand
Genetic inactivation of alpha-synuclein affects embryonic development of dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra, but not the ventral tegmental area, in mouse brain
TLDR
This precise study of DA neurons during development of the SN revealed that not only is the number ofDA neurons reduced by the end of the period of ontogenic selection, but that the way these neurons are formed is altered in alpha-synuclein knockout mice. Expand

Time of neuron origin and gradients of neurogenesis in midbrain dopaminergic neurons in the mouse
TLDR
Findings indicate that mouse and rat brains have nearly identical developmental patterns in the midbrain, and neurogenetic gradients in dopaminergic neurons are similar to those found in Nissl studies in rats. Expand
Catecholamine innervation of the basal forebrain IV. Topography of the dopamine projection to the basal forebrain and neostriatum
TLDR
The topography of the DA neuron projection on the basal forebrain and neostriatum is organized in three planes, dorsal‐ventral, medial‐lateral and anterior‐posterior, consistent with the view that the DA neurons of the SN‐VTA complex form a single nuclear group with a highly topographically organized projection innervating not only deep nuclei of the telencephalon but allocortical structures as well. Expand
Efferent connections of the substantia nigra and ventral tegmental area in the rat
TLDR
Isotope injections confined to the pars reticulata label sparse nigrostriatal fibers, and numerous nigrothalamic fibers ascending mainly to the nucleus ventromedialis and in lesser number to the parafascicular nucleus and the paralamellar zone of the nucleus mediodorsalis. Expand
The pre- and postnatal development of the dopaminergic cell groups in the ventral mesencephalon and the dopaminergic innervation of the striatum of the rat
TLDR
The ontogeny of the dopaminergic system was studied in detail with immunocytochemical methods employing antibodies against dopamine to test the hypothesis that dopamine plays an organizational role in the development of the striatum. Expand
Ascending projections of presumed dopamine-containing neurons in the ventral tegmentum of the rat as demonstrated by horseradish peroxidase
TLDR
The results suggest that although there is considerable overlap, and that the same subdivisions within the substantia nigra pars compacta and the ventral tegmental area appear to innervate diverse regions of the forebrain, there also exists a general topographical organization with respect to the projections of these neurons. Expand
Developmental cell death in dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra of mice
TLDR
It is demonstrated that destruction of intrinsic striatal neurons by a local injection of quinolinic acid (QA) dramatically enhances the magnitude of SNpc apoptosis and results in a lower number of adult SNpc dopaminergic neurons. Expand
Single neurons in the ventral tegmental area that project to both the cerebral and cerebellar cortical areas by way of axon collaterals
TLDR
Whether individual neurons in the ventral tegmental area of the rat send their axons to both the cerebellum and other brain regions is examined. Expand
Monoamine innervation of the forebrain: Collateralization
TLDR
Previous suppositions of the branching of monoamine axons must be revised to account for the existence of cells exhibiting totally different collateralization patterns within each monoamine nucleus. Expand
Specification of Distinct Dopaminergic Neural Pathways: Roles of the Eph Family Receptor EphB1 and Ligand Ephrin-B2
TLDR
It is suggested that the ligand–receptor pair may contribute to the establishment of distinct neural pathways by selectively inhibiting the neurite outgrowth and cell survival of mistargeted neurons. Expand
Efferent connections and nigral afferents of the nucleus accumbens septi in the rat
TLDR
The results of this study confirm earlier reports of accumbens projections to the globus pallidus and to dorsal strata of the medial half of the substantia nigra and confirm that this striatal region receives telen­ cephalic afferents from the hippocampus and amyg­ dala rather than from the neocortex.
