The mesocorticolimbic dopamine system is essential for cognitive and emotive brain functions and is thus an important target in major brain diseases like schizophrenia, drug addiction, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. However, the cellular basis for the diversity in behavioral functions and associated dopamine-release pattern within the mesocorticolimbic system has remained unclear. Here, we report the identification of a type of dopaminergic neuron within the mesocorticolimbic… Expand
Neuroanatomy: A split (mid)brain for dopamine
TLDR
The discovery in this elegant study that there are multiple pathways within the mesocorticolimbic dopamine system might lead to the development of drugs or other treatments that specifically target these separate pathways and could thus avoid the side effects associated with the current non-specific dopamine-based treatments. Expand
Nucleus Accumbens Subnuclei Regulate Motivated Behavior via Direct Inhibition and Disinhibition of VTA Dopamine Subpopulations
TLDR
Using retrograde tracing, electrophysiology, optogenetics, and behavioral assays, principles of afferent-specific control in the mesolimbic DA system are identified and a distinction in the incorporation of inhibitory inputs between different subtypes of mesolimal dopamine neurons is suggested. Expand
Dopamine neuron glutamate cotransmission: frequency-dependent modulation in the mesoventromedial projection
TLDR
Dopamine neuron glutamate cotransmission may play an important role in encoding the incentive salience value of conditioned stimuli that activate goal-directed behaviors, and may be an important subtract for enduring drug-seeking behaviors. Expand
Roles for nigrostriatal—not just mesocorticolimbic—dopamine in reward and addiction

TLDR
The similarities between nigrostriatal and mesolimbic dopamine systems can be as important as their differences. Expand
Somatodendritic dopamine release: recent mechanistic insights
  • M. Rice, J. Patel
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
  • 2015
TLDR
Recent mechanistic aspects of somatodendritic DA release are reviewed, with particular emphasis on the Ca2+ dependence of release and the potential role of exocytotic proteins. Expand
Dissecting the diversity of midbrain dopamine neurons
  • J. Roeper
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Trends in Neurosciences
  • 2013
TLDR
Recent data supporting an unexpected degree of diversity among these midbrain DA neurons in the mammalian brain are highlighted, ranging from their developmental lineages and different synaptic connectivity to their electrophysiological properties and behavioral functions. Expand
Paliperidone increases spontaneous and evoked firing of mesocortical dopaminergic neurons by activating a hyperpolarization-activated inward current
TLDR
Paliperidone increased the spontaneous and evoked firing of mesocortical neurons, possibly by activating the Ih inward current and reducing the inhibitory synaptic transmission, which provides an underlying mechanism of paliperid one's application in schizophrenia. Expand
Subtypes of Midbrain Dopamine Neurons
The diversity of midbrain dopamine (DA) neurons has multiple levels ranging from developmental, anatomical, functional to disease-related with important DA neuron subtype pathologies in Parkinson'sExpand
Activity of Neurochemically Heterogeneous Dopaminergic Neurons in the Substantia Nigra during Spontaneous and Driven Changes in Brain State
TLDR
It is concluded that CB-negative and CB-positive dopaminergic neurons exhibit different activities in vivo, and, unlike dopaminerg VTA neurons, they are not commonly recruited or inhibited by aversive stimuli. Expand
Dopamine tunes prefrontal outputs to orchestrate aversive processing
TLDR
This work proposes a framework wherein dopamine can serve as a signal for switching mPFC states by orchestrating how information is routed to the rest of the brain through the mesocortical dopamine system. Expand

Mesocortical dopaminergic neurons. 1. Electrophysiological properties and evidence for soma-dendritic autoreceptors
TLDR
Whereas most antidromic responses of nigrostriatal and mesoaccumbens neurons consisted of the initial segment spike only, cortically-elicited antidromics responses typically consisted of a full initial segment-soma-dendritic spike. Expand
Properties and Opioid Inhibition of Mesolimbic Dopamine Neurons Vary according to Target Location
TLDR
The results suggest that opioids differentially inhibit mesolimbic neurons depending on their target projections, and the regulation of extracellular dopamine by dopamine uptake transporters was equal across the VTA. Expand
Ih Channels Contribute to the Different Functional Properties of Identified Dopaminergic Subpopulations in the Midbrain
TLDR
Diversity within the DA system is not restricted to distinct axonal projections and differences in synaptic connectivity, but also involves differences in postsynaptic conductances between neurochemically and topographically distinct DA neurons. Expand
Kappa opioids selectively control dopaminergic neurons projecting to the prefrontal cortex.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that DA release in specific brain regions can be independently regulated by opioid targeting of a subpopulation of VTA DA neurons, with important implications for understanding addiction, attention disorders, and schizophrenia. Expand
Evidence for the absence of impulse-regulating somatodendritic and synthesis-modulating nerve terminal autoreceptors on subpopulations of mesocortical dopamine neurons
TLDR
Subgroups of midbrain dopaminergic systems were again found to differ and the administration of gamma-butyrolactone increased dopamine levels in all areas sampled (prefrontal, cingulate and piriform cortices as well as the caudate nucleus); however, the decline in dopamine levels after synthesis inhibition with alpha-methyltyrosine was significantly faster in the prefrontal and cingulated cortices relative to the caUDate nucleus. Expand
The principal features and mechanisms of dopamine modulation in the prefrontal cortex
TLDR
Certain principles of DA mechanisms are identified by drawing on published, as well as unpublished data from PFC and other CNS sites to shed light on aspects of DA neuromodulation and address some of the existing controversies. Expand
The ventral tegmental area revisited: is there an electrophysiological marker for dopaminergic neurons?
TLDR
It is concluded that reliable physiological criteria for VTA DA neuron identification have yet to be determined, and that the criteria currently being used are unreliable. Expand
Electrophysiological identification of mesencephalic ventromedial tegmental (VMT) neurons projecting to the frontal cortex, septum and nucleus accumbens
TLDR
The results show that VMT projections to different target areas originate mainly from different VMT neurons, however, in some cases single V MT neurons were found to send axon collaterals to two different areas. Expand
Mesocortical Dopamine Neurons Operate in Distinct Temporal Domains Using Multimodal Signaling
TLDR
It is suggested that the mesocortical system might transmit fast signals about reward or salience via corelease of glutamate, whereas the simultaneous prolonged DA-mediated modulation of firing biases the long-term processing dynamics of PFC networks. Expand

The regulation of extracellular dopamine levels in the MPFC and BAN is suitable for the “long- range” transfer of chemical information in the brain and is consistent with a hypothesis of extrasynaptic neurotransmission. Expand
