Central Dopaminergic Transmission

Producer: British Pharmacological Society

This highly interactive program covers the physiological role and clinical significance of dopamine in the central nervous system; dopamine transmission: synthesis, storage, release, pre- and post- synaptic receptors, uptake and inactivation; central dopaminergic pathways in the rat brain; dopamine receptors (D1 and D2) - their sub-types and transduction mechanisms; dopaminergic drugs - their action and clinical importance. The program assumes a basic knowledge of synaptic transmission, covered in another program, Synaptic Transmission in the CNS.
