This chapter considers the major discoveries in dopamine (DA) research in the central nervous system from the anatomical, synaptic, and neurohistochemical perspectives, in keeping with the author's didactic hypothesis that “the gains in brain are mainly in the stain.” Topics discussed include what DA does, when DA neurons fire, and what DA does to the postsynaptic targets of DA neurons.

Keywords:   dopamine, neuron, central nervous system
