This volume provides a variety of technical approaches to study dopamine system function and dysfunction. Chapters guide readers through dopamine release in ex vivo and freely moving animals, multi-recording devices for in vivo simultaneous single cell and population activity, in silico modeling of dopamine neurons activity, neuroanatomical approaches, unbiased stereology, ultrastructural analyses of dopaminergic neurons, and axonal innervation. Additionally, chapters also incorporate pharmacological tools to model neuropsychiatric diseases, novel behavioral paradigms to dissect dopamine's role in behavior, and functional imaging to follow human dopamine system development. In the Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your laboratory.
Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Dopamine Neurotransmission aims to be a valuable resource for researchers in various disciplines.
