QuestionAnswer
The dopaminergic neurons found in the substantia nigra are associated with _______.
Which biogenic monoamine system is involved in PTSD?
What 2 enzymes degrade dopamine?
What enzyme converts dopamine to norepinephrine?
True or False: There are 2 classes of adrenergic receptors, alpha and beta.
D2-like receptors _____ cAMP levels.
Where can dopamine be found in the brain?
What enzyme catalyzes the conversion of L-Dopa to Dopamine
What is responsible for the reuptake of norepinephrine?
This class of drugs block the degradation of dopamine.
True or False: An excess in the activation of dopamine D2 receptors can lead to schizophrenia.
How many types of receptors does dopamine have?
Dopamine Receptors, D2, D3 and D4, are D2-like receptors. Theses receptors activate which type of G protein? (stimulatory or inhibitory G protein).
True or False: a1 adregeneric receptors are inhibitory, decreasing cAMP levels.
Where can neurons that release serotonin be found?
What is responsible for the reuptake of dopamine?
Which serotonin receptor is ligand gated or ionotrophic?
True or False: Modulatory neurons arise from a large number of neurons scattered across the CNS.
What 2 enzymes degrade norepinephrine?
Dopaminergic projections to the frontal cortex, nucleus accumbens, and limbic system orginate from where? They function in reward, cognition and motivation.
Which dopamine receptor functions as an autoreceptor, inhibiting the release of too much dopamine?
What is responsible for the reuptake of serotonin?
True or False: Serotonin and dopamine share a common precursor and are synthesized through very similar pathways.
QuestionAnswer
What enzyme catalyzes the conversion of tyrosine to L-Dopa?
What transporter system is responsible for packaging catecholamines into synaptic vesicles?
B-adrenergic receptors act by _____ cAMP levels.
True or False: Modulatory neurons are able to influence many other neurons.
What biogenic monoamine neurotransmitter is involved in attention and arousal?
A severe loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigria leads to the development of what disease?
Serotonin is derived from what amino acid?
What biogenic monoamine neurotransmitter is associated with eating, sleeping, and mood?
True or False:Serotonin is degraded by catechol O methyltransferase and monoamine oxidase.
Dopaminergic projections from substantia nigra project to the ______ functioning in voluntary movements.
Dopamine Receptors, D1 and D5, are D1-like receptors. Theses receptors activate which type of G protein? (stimulatory or inhibitory G protein).
The dopaminergic neurons found in the ventral tegmental area are associated with _____ and ____.
Where can norepinephrine be found in the brain?
Which enzyme converts tryptophan into 5-HTP?
Dopamine is derived from what amino acid?
True or False: Dopamine synthesizing neurons are located in the medulla.
Which biogenic monoamine system is involved in mood, cognition, and arousal?
Almost all receptors of modulatory Neurotransmitters are apart of what class? (ionotrophic or metabotrophic)
D1-like receptors _____ cAMP levels.
Which neurotransmitter is heavily associated with depression?
True or False: Although addictive substances bind to an array of neuron receptors, dopamine reinforces the addictive behavior.
_____, a pre-cursor for dopamine, acts as a treatment for Parkinsons by increasing the levels of dopamine in the brain.
