The mesencephalic dopaminergic (mesDA) system controls movement and emotional behaviour, and its degeneration causes Parkinson's disease and other psychiatric disorders. Recent findings are leading to better understanding of the genetic control of generation and functioning of the mesDA system. This advancement could disclose new perspectives for therapeutic approaches of mesDA-related disorders.
