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