Regulation and Modulation of Depression-Related Behaviours: Role of Dopaminergic Neurons

Dopamine, a neurotransmitter produced in various brain regions, is implicated in regulation of motor control, reward, mood and addiction. Depression is a serious disorder affecting the day-to-day activities of patients that also imposes a substantial financial burden on society. The following chapter offers an expansive demonstration of the heterogeneous dopamine system in the brain, by describing some of the advances made in unraveling the various dopaminergic neural pathways and molecular mechanisms involved in depression. It also sheds some light on how these same neural pathways might be responsible for the disturbances in sleep and circadian rhythms experienced by patients suffering from depression.
