Drug abuse-induced plasticity of putative dopaminergic (pDAergic) ventral tegmental area (VTA) neurons may play an important role in changes in the mesocorticolimbic system that lead to the development of addiction. In the present study, extracellular recordings were used to examine timedependent effects of dopamine (DA) on pDAergic VTA neurons in rat brain… CONTINUE READING
