Dopamine Interaction with other Neurotransmitter Systems: Relevance in the Pathophysiology and Treatment of CNS Disorders
TLDR
It is evident that the discovery of DA as a neurotransmitter in the brain marked a turning point in modern neuroscience and elucidated the understanding of brain function in both health and disease, and opened a second exciting electrophysiological era for the dopaminergic neurons.
Dissecting the diversity of midbrain dopamine neurons
Combined immunohistochemical and retrograde tracing reveals little evidence of innervation of the rat dentate gyrus by midbrain dopamine neurons
TLDR
The results indicate that virtually all tyrosine hydroxylase fibers throughout the hippocampus are of a noradrenergic phenotype, while the overlying cortex contains both dopaminergic and norADrenergic fiber networks.
Dopaminergic Neurones in the Main Olfactory Bulb: An Overview from an Electrophysiological Perspective
TLDR
This work focuses mainly on the electrophysiological properties of DA interneurones, reviewing findings concerning their excitability profiles in adulthood and in different phases of adult neurogenesis, and discusses dynamic changes of the DA interNEurones related to environmental stimuli and their possible functional implications.
Dopaminergic and noradrenergic circuit development in zebrafish
TLDR
This review wants to focus on conserved and dynamic aspects of the different catecholaminergic systems, which may help to evaluate the zebrafish as a model for dopaminergic and noradrenergic cellular specification and circuit function as well as biomedical aspects ofcatecholamine systems.
Shine bright: considerations on the use of fluorescent substrates in living monoaminergic neurons in vitro
TLDR
Malfunctions of the three monoaminergic systems are associated with different psychiatric and neurological diseases such as depression, anxiety, chronic pain, sleep disorders, schizophrenia, various aspects of drug abuse, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease.

Widespread origin of the primate mesofrontal dopamine system.
TLDR
A degree of compartmentalization of the mesofrontal DA system in primates is demonstrated, and it is suggested that this projection should no longer be viewed as a unitary midline system.
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.
Dopaminergic cell group A8 in the monkey: Anatomical organization and projections to the striatum
TLDR
Each mesencephalic cell group projects primarily to one specific striatal region but also participates, albeit to a lesser extent, in the innervation of all the remaining striatal parts.
