Enhanced delta opioid receptor transmission may represent an endogenous compensatory mechanism in parkinsonism to reduce the activity of the indirect striatopallidal pathway following dopamine depletion. Furthermore, increased delta opioid receptor transmission may be causative in the production of dyskinesia following repeated dopaminergic treatment in… CONTINUE READING
