An exploration of the molecular mechanisms of axonal and dendritic dopamine reveals a few surprizes

Short summary: In this seminar, the speaker will present some of his recent work on the mechanisms of axonal and somatodendritic dopamine release. The role of synaptotagmin isoforms will be discussed. Some of the implications of these discoveries on our understanding of the physiological roles dopamine in the brain will also be explored.
