About this book


To foster a better understanding of dopamine receptor functionality, this detailed volume creates an interface between updated classical methods and new emerging technologies heretofore not available to new or seasoned researchers. Divided in five sections dedicated to experimental approaches investigating different facets of dopaminergic signal transduction, Dopamine Receptor Technologies covers epigenetic and post-transcriptional analysis, computational and biochemical techniques, visualization and imaging methods, molecular and cell biological tools, as well as behavioral assessment. The book, as a part of the popular Neuromethods series, provides insightful step-by-step protocols and methodological reviews that readers will find useful.

Practical and versatile, Dopamine Receptor Technologies seeks to aid researchers in developing new pharmacological tools to improve our knowledge of in vivo roles played by each receptor subtype and the synthesis of prospective lead compounds for drug discovery.
