- [Functional mapping of dopaminergic transmission]Nobukatsu Sawamoto
Human Brain Research Center, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine
Rinsho Shinkeigaku 47:832-4. 2007..Since excessive stimulation of dopamine receptors in the frontal cortex can rather deteriorate its function, the benefit in the striatum and the risk in the frontal cortex should be properly evaluated for dopamine replacement therapy...
