All published studies regarding dopamine and schizophrenia and all studies on the role of dopamine in cognition were reviewed. SeamansNatalia Gorelova Neuropsychopharmacology Evidence, particularly from intracellular recconceptualization studies in animals and plasma HVA measurements, suggests that neuroleptics act by reducing dopamine activity in mesolimbic dopamine neurons.
