Dopamine and l-glutamate are important signals which guide the development of functional neural circuits within the striatal complex. Disequilibrium of these neurotransmitter systems is believed to be etiological for the genesis of neurological and psychiatric diseases. Since dopamine plays a crucial role for the early transmitter-regulated differentiation of striatal GABAergic neurons, we emphasized that dopaminergic transmission may also be involved in the fine tuning of intra-striatal… CONTINUE READING
