Abstract:

Dopamine OA has been implicated in the cortical pathophysiology of several neurological disorders, including schizophrenia and Parkinsons Disease. Until recently, motor areas of the neocortex were thought to receive only sparse DA innervation. It is now known that the motor cortex of rodents and primates are densely Innervated by DA, but its detailed circuitry and role in motor cortex function remain unclear.
