Dopamine: should I stay or should I go now? Academic Article uri icon


  • In C. elegans, dopamine signaling regulates locomotion behavior. Chase and colleagues report that this signaling occurs through extrasynaptic and antagonistically acting receptors coexpressed in motor neurons. These results provide surprising insights into the G-protein pathways mediating this antagonism, with implications for dopamine signaling across species.
